Updated Oct. 23: It's 2016, and the Cubs are going to the World Series. We know. We almost can't believe it either.

The team plays the Indians this coming week for the World Series title, but to quote a guy on the Red Line right now: "Tonight, we celebrate."
Wrigleyville was the picture of mayhem last night, but photographer Tyler LaRiviere has some early photos of the festivities, above. He counted at least one arrest, one marriage proposal, and one torn up street sign before midnight, but Twitter documented some even stranger sights:
