CHICAGO -- Chicago Cubs fans can only watch as the Boston Red Sox advance to the World Series, and Harry Caray's restaurant is doing its part to celebrate the success of the long-suffering franchise.
The Red Sox haven't won a World Series since 1918 -- when they beat the Cubs, 4-2 -- and the Cubs haven't won a World Series since 1908.
Harry's bar features a sign that counts down the days until Opening Day. The sign now counts down the number of wins needed for a Red Sox victory.
The main display case, which is home to Caray's trademark glasses, is also housing a 1946 Baseball Magazine cover which features former Red Sox Ted Williams and former Cardinal Stan Musial during their battle in that year's World Series. It also has the first baseball former Red Sox catcher Carlton Fisk signed when he was inducted into the Baseball Hall of Fame.
Throughout the course of the World Series, the restaurant will feature food specials including Boston clam chowder, lobster rolls and Boston baked beans.
The restaurant is located at 33 W. Kinzie Street in downtown Chicago.
