Boulder’s Waylon Lewis is an ambitious man. Not only does he run Elephant Journal, an online publication, in our February feature Single in the City, he mentions his plans to run for city council in a year. Here we find out what he does to relax. Best local date spot: Sherpa’s, Burnt Toast, or the Kitchen. He’s so over: Women who wear super-chemically perfume. Nothing’s less attractive than kissing chemicals. Rainy-day activity: On the couch, under a bunch of blankets, watching old Daily Shows or old movies with my pup, Redford. Secret hobby: Taking baths and reading The New Yorker or Dwell.
Fantasy vacation: To travel the whole world. Celebrity crush: Like every other 12-year-old in ’86, I had that Sports Illustrated poster of Elle Macpherson on my wall. On his nightstand: A Nat Sherman cigar box full of childhood stuff; a biography of Harold Ross, the founder of The New Yorker; books by people I’m about to interview; a bunch of plants. iPod Embarrassment: All of Enya. Where to meet women: Yoga class (on average there’s two guys for every 20 girls). The Kitchen Upstairs. Hiking on Mount Sanitas with the dog. Farmer’s market.
