Goliath Versus You

Local independent businesses help define the soul of our communities as they face off against big money and power from giant corporations and private equity firms. How do they make it work? Back in the late ‘90s in the waning days of Seattle’s grunge rock era, I once walked by the storefront of a little coffee shop on...


2022 Election Guide

Every year, Yellow Scene Magazine publishes an exhaustive Election Guide. Because we are “old-school” and still believe journalism is important, we do not allow email interviews and require a 15-minute call with each candidate. They are all asked the same 6 questions our Editorial Board outlined at the start. The only exceptions are races that these questions don't make sense for such as Board of Education, CU Regents, Coroner, etc. After all interviews are completed, the YS Editorial Board reconvenes and decides on their final endorsements.

In this election guide feature of Yellow Scene, we wanted to explore which organizations are poised to help Colorado women who run for office, why they’re necessary to bridge the dreadfully named “ambition gap,” and why women still hesitate to throw their hat in the ring, even in Colorado, a state that is 2nd in the country in terms of female representation in state government.

Spotlight on Sam Adams

Sam Adams is a dyed-in-the-wool storyteller. Regardless of what his occupation du jour is — as a comedian or long-time sports journalist — his joy for storytelling is the tie that binds all of his pursuits together. Over the course of nearly two hours, we talked to Adams about being a storyteller, the incredible success of his Dry Bar Comedy video that went viral in 2018, and what it was like playing “the most racist city in the United States” as a Black man…

Holding our breath for the midterms | Duly Noted

Pins and needles. That’s probably the best way to frame how most Americans are feeling in the run-up to the midterms, taking place on Nov. 8, 2022. It’s become a bit impossible to predict how the ballots will shape up, thanks to this unprecedented era in U.S. politics where the Culture Wars hold sway over meaningful legislation.

We've gathered some of the biggest news involving the restaurant scene of Boulder County and the surrounding area. Your taste buds will be tantalizes to check some of these places out.

Off Menu with… Chef Luis Catzim | Eatery @ the Sport Stable

Late in the day on a Saturday afternoon, the Eatery @ The Sport Stable (also known as The HangryHorse) is an active place. It couldn’t really be any other way. Just to walk into their dining room, which is located as part of the Sport Stable facility at the end of Louisville’s Main Street, you pass a volleyball court and walk just outside two premium rinks used for ice hockey, curling, and skating lessons.

Off Menu with… Chef Andrea Uzarowski | Süti & Co.

I arrived at my appointment with Copenhagen-born Chef Andrea Uzarowski at Süti & Co. Uzarowski spoke to me at length about following her instinct to create the life she wanted. As of last month, this dream now includes her bakery and shop just off Pearl Street in Boulder where she and I talked. It’s a place where customers can enjoy good food and appreciate a moment or pause with something sweet and a cup of tea.

FX’s The Bear has served to remind us just how good food TV can be. It’s inspired us to think about some of our other favorite food television series’, documentaries, and films.

Malty Good Times Return: GABF Returns for a 40th Anniversary Event | In The Cups

The Friday session for the Great American Beer Festival’s 40th anniversary wasn’t blessed by the crisp fall weather the festival often enjoys. Instead it was gray, damp, and a little chilly. In other words, perfect weather for a festival-appropriate warm flannel and malty beer.


The Heroes: Stages of Boulder County

As we continue our Heroes series, we turn this month to our stages. We spoke to 9 representatives from vastly different kinds of venues. Some are solely for music, some for theater and opera, some for comedy, some a mix of it all. While the purposes of these spaces might be quite disparate, each person we spoke with truly believes in the importance of music and performance in their communities.


Telehealth For The Win! | Health

2022 is a year of telehealth and technology. There has been and will continue to be a surge in health wearables to track blood pressure, blood sugar, mood, physical activity, and even tone of voice. In 2023, there will be more new ways to help manage disease and disability while promoting activity and ability. With all this data, what do we do with it, how do we use it, and where does it need to be relevant?
