The Chicago Cubs have been setting lots of records of late, not the least of which is making it past Atlanta to advance to the National League Championship Series for the first time in 95 years. Their emotional win in Atlanta Sunday night was celebrated throughout the Wrigleyville area, including at gay clubs.
After WCT went to press, the Cubs played their first game Tuesday in Wrigley Field against the Marlins. Wednesday is a 7:20 game at Wrigley, then the Cubs travel to Florida for games Friday (7:20), Saturday (6:50), and, if needed, Sunday at 3:20. Other potential games, if no one has won four, are then at Wrigley Tuesday, Oct. 14, 7:20 p.m. and Wed., Oct. 15 at 7:20 p.m.
