What You're Doing Tonight: February 19

Poetry by Saul Williams, a tequila-paired dinner and a toast to Harry Caray

SPOKEN WORD STYLINGS: Saul Williams, an acclaimed spoken word artist, author and actor, will appear as part of Columbia College's African Heritage Month series of events. At Columbia's Hokin Gallery and Annex, 6PM, $3 suggested donation.

SPIRITED DINNER: Join fellow tequila conoisseurs at Nuevo Latino restaurant Carnivale for a Casa Noble Tequila dinner tonight. Casa Noble owner Jose Hermosillo will lead the four-course dinner paired with his tequilas, with menu items including "veulve la vida" (shrimp, oysters and calamari in a spicy tomato broth) and "cochinita pibil" (slow-roasted pork with sweet potato puree and pickled onions). 7PM, $45 per person.

HOLY COW: Take part in the 11th annual Worldwide Toast to Harry Caray, the late, great Cubs announcer, at Harry Caray's in River North. Raise a glass with fans across the globe, and then sing along with Dutchie Caray, who will lead the crowd in a rousing rendition of "Take Me Out to the Ballgame." In "honor" of the Cubs' 101st season without a World Series win, the first 101 guests will receive a free pair of Caray's infamous glasses and a hat, plus there will be a 101-gallon glass of Budweiser (Harry's favorite) on display and $1.01 Bud drafts. 7PM, no cover.
