Eli’s Cheesecake salutes Harry Caray in honor of the 20th Annual Worldwide Toast to Harry Caray on February 15th! Our founder, Eli Schulman, was a great friend of Harry’s and they spent many a day together cheering on the Cubs at Wrigley Field (and many a night together at Eli’s the Place for Steak’s piano bar).

​In keeping with this year’s theme​, SPACE, THE INFINITE FRONTIER (a nod to Will Ferrell’s Harry Caray ​skit which appeared on Saturday Night Live), Eli’s will toast Harry with an Out Of This World Milky Way Cheesecake Shake, a thick and creamy  combination of ice cream, cheesecake and Milky Way candy bars,  topped with a “Raise the Glass” flag. The cheesecake shake will be available for purchase on Thursday, February 15th for $3.50 from 3-6pm at our Bakery Cafe, 6701 W. Forest Preserve Drive, Chicago.

Be sure to take a selfie on our supersized Eli’s C​HARRY Cheesecake ​bench​ (originally created for the city’s Sweet Home Chicago street art installation), complete with a backdrop of Wrigley Field.
