Dr. Skrap's Completely Worthless Horoscopes (March 28 - April 10)

Aries 3/21-4/19 
You find it increasingly frustrating to hear co-workers argue philosophies that don’t have common sense on their side. You can understand why they get more and more fervent about their stances. Where there aren’t facts to back up their arguments, all they have control of is their volume.

Taurus 4/20-5/20 
The neighbors will be raking their yard while you’re still waiting for the snow to melt from yours. This could be bad or good depending on your persepctive.

Gemini  5/21-6/21 
Winter is finally coming to a close... and those idiots told you you needed snow tires. Now they’ll probably tell you you need a sump pump. Idiots.

Cancer  6/22-7/22 
The answer is smoked pork. You figure out the question.

 Leo  7/23-8/22
It’s amazing how you and your family can all abandon nearly all of the things you gave up for lent on one Easter Brunch!

Virgo  8/23-9/22
Your mother in law is coming to visit, so you’ll want to start putting off work now that you’ll have to come in and do over the weekend.

Libra  9/23-10/22
You sit at the kitchen table with a pile of bills in front of you and wonder what happened to the good old days when all you needed to do to make problems go away was turn up the volume.

Scorpio 10/23-11/21
Your heart sinks when you see the person you’ve been secretly in love with since junior high school and they’ve put on a few... dozen pounds. The magic is dead. Oh, and like you’re looking any better with your own spare tire there, sexy!

Sagittarius 11/22-12/21 
The feeling is in the air. It’s time to pull out the golf clubs for the year, take out the nine empty beer cans, the stale pack of sunflower seeds that mice have been enjoying all winter and it look like you need to invest in some new range balls.

Capricorn  12/22-1/19
You didn’t much care for working on that part of the year when it was beautiful outside in September. Why the hell would you suddenly want to work on it now?

Aquarius 1/20-2/18
You high schools mates called to tell you they want to get the old band back together. So that means they want to borrow your van again and have you pack up the stuff after each show while they chase girls. Ah... good times.

 Pisces  2/19-3/20
That’s funny. You’d swear that fit just fine when you last wore it in October. The dryer must be broken.

Independence Bluegrass and Wine Tasting Featuring Finnders & Youngberg 5 and The Driftless Sisters

Posted on June 18, 2015

Thursday, July 2 @ 6:30–10 PM
Schmid Innovation Center Courtyard (Caradco Warehouse)

Two years ago, 365ink had a chance to bring an old friend of ours back to Dubuque for very unique bluegrass concert under blue skies, but in the friendly confines of the just-completed Caradco Warehouse at 955 Washington St. in downtown Dubuque. Tri-State native, Mike Finders’ band, Finnders & Youngberg, have earned their stripes in the bluegrass world and if such a rowdy musical subset had egos, they would certainly qualify as rock stars. Needless to say, the event was a huge success. Well, as fate would have it, the stars have aligned once again this year and we’re very happy to announce the return of Finnders & Youngberg to the now-titled Schmid Innovation Center Courtyard at the Caradco Warehouse in Dubuque’s Millwork District. This year’s event will once again feature a fabulous wine tasting by Dubuque Heritage Winery as well as yet to be determined goodies from both the Dubuque Food Co-Op and Inspire Café, which both call the Caradco building home. We’re also thrilled to have the Tri-States next Bluegrass rock stars, The Driftless Sisters, opening for Finnders & Youngberg that night.

McDonald Park and along the riverfront near Lock and Dam 11 being one of the biggest gatherings to be witnessed the entire year.
