broken hearts in his wake 

Wednesday, Oct 2 2013

The former loves of Davy Rothbart are probably pretty pissed at him by now. Since his essay collection My Heart Is An Idiot hit the shelves last year, Rothbart — creator of FOUND Magazine, filmmaker, and contributor to NPR program This American Life — has recounted his sometimes endearing, sometimes excruciating love blunders live on tour all over the country. Lucky for him, this year's Unfinished Business Tour sends him on stage with a particularly talented entourage, should any of the aforementioned ladies show up to exact revenge on the Idiot. His little brother, musician Peter Rothbart, accompanies him on tour to perform songs inspired by finds from the magazine. Long awaited new issue FOUND #9 just came out, as well as a new album compiling the elder Rothbart's work on This American Life, giving both brothers much fodder to tug at your heartstrings with.

  • Felton: Touring the Redwoods
    Blue skies meet redwood canopies in the mountain town of Felton, located just north of Santa Cruz on Highway 9. Once a bustling logging community, the town is now a mix of mellow locals and serene wilderness. Visitors can enjoy the redwoods in nearby Henry Cowell Redwoods State Park and splash in swimming holes in the San Lorenzo River. For a bite to eat stop by Rocky’s Cafe for fruit-laden pancakes, barbeque at the Cowboy Bar & Grill and poolside burgers at the Trout Farm Inn. Other stops worth checking out include Roaring Camp Railroads, the Mount Hermon zip line tour, and the educational Bigfoot Discovery Museum. For beer or cocktails a log cabin bar has you covered.
