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.

Rock & Roll Rewind

Posted on July 17, 2014

It’s no secret that Dubuque and the surrounding area has a rich and vibrant live music scene. Pick up any issue of 365ink and look at the live music listings for any given weekend. Not only will there be multiple choices on Friday and Saturday nights (not to mention week nights) but even on Sundays, a music lover might have a dozen or more opportunities to find live music around the Tri-States. (We actually counted 20 live music events on a recent summer Sunday!)  

While part of this phenomenon is no doubt a result of the area’s general vibrancy and economic health, the richness of the current Dubuque music scene can be traced back decades to the 1960s, ‘70s, and ‘80s, when high school garage bands rocked teen dances and gymnasiums and rock, blues, and country bands entertained in all sorts of bars, taverns, and clubs. Whatever happened to those bands?

Dubuque Gran Fondo

Posted on July 07, 2014

Greg LeMond will be the guest of honor at the inaugural Dubuque Gran Fondo, a combination ride and race that begins and ends at the National Mississippi River Museum and Aquarium. The ride, which is described by organizers as the equivalent of a "cycling marathon"—some riders will race to win, others will ride to enjoy an unforgettable day on a challenging course that includes many signature Dubuque bluff hills and sections of gravel roads in Dubuque County. 


 

Summer Theatre

Posted on July 02, 2014

One only has to look at the cover of this issue of 365ink (or flip through the rest of the issue for that matter) to realize that Dubuque has a robust arts and cultural landscape. Check out the offerings for more great summer theatre offerings! But sometimes there is so much going on that we don’t always keep up with all the possibilities.
