It’s that time again, kids. Time to clear out my inbox. (That sounds dirty, doesn’t it? “Hey, sailor, let’s share a bottle of gin and clear out my inbox!”) That said, I thought we’d take a moment to quickly answer some reader emails before diving into the weekly happenings. Do you have a question for me? Want to tell me about an event you think needs to be in a future list of happenings? Drop me a line, sugar, at dearruthie@shepex.com.

Dear Ruthie,

Is tweeting my ex cheating on the guy I’m dating now? He thinks it is. I say it’s not.

What do you think?



Dear Tim,

Sugar booger, if your guy thinks it’s cheating, it is. If you have to ask if it’s cheating, it is. Unplug from the past and get your naughty-naughty on with the guy in your present.


Dear Ruthie,

What do you think about men who believe that women were put on this earth to serve them?

—Free Thinker

Dear Thinker,
I think they’re going to be very lonely.

Dear Ruthie,

Being a Milwaukee icon yourself, which local figure would you most like to hook up with?



Dear Curious,

I’d like to knock boots with Milverine in the backseat of that black religious car while Art Kumbalek takes photos. Let’s make it happen! Horny Cheeseheads, unite!
