Elizabeth Miller of Boulder Weekly interviews David Rothman for the front page of Boulder Weekly: Boulder County’s True Independent Voice. Follow the link to read the full thing.

He’s so frequently there the waitress no longer asks for his order and instead simply delivers it to the table. He’s like a stray dog there, he says, he just keeps showing up and they just keep feeding him.

It’s also the kind of place he seems to seek out, a place where locals come — the quirky Boulder locals, the guys dressed on a frigid day for working outdoors in the cold. This is not the home of Patagucci and Whole Paycheck. It’s the backdrop for characters who understand, like Rothman, that life has much more to it than fresh tracks and big cliffs with pillowtop landings.

And that’s the life that fills the pages of Living the Life.
