The String Cheese Incident have announced their final two incidents of 2019. The two-night stand will be at Denver’s new Mission Ballroom. The Denver Post said that the venue “is among the best-sounding rooms in the city,” and added, “Denver finally has the concert venue it deserves.” Tickets will be available for purchase using the “Mission Fair Ticketing” system, a concept developed by the venue to ensure that everyone has equal and fair access to tickets.  

SCI spent 2019 celebrating their 25th anniversary with several new single releases, a sold-out Electric Forest, appearances at notable festivals such as Peach Fest and Floyd Fest, a series of special shows across the country including Atlanta, a Colorado amphitheater run at Dillon Amphitheater and Red Rocks, and will continue with upcoming shows in Eugene, San Francisco, Oakland, Austin, Chicago and now Denver. SCI plan to use the first part of 2020 to focus on writing. The band will be back on the road in June.

Burnham Law Brings on Colorado Local, Former Judge Ryan Kamada

Burnham Law announced today the hiring of former District Court Judge Ryan Kamada. Having served on the bench in the 19th Judicial District, Kamada brings a wealth of experience. During his appointment to the district court, Kamada handled a domestic relations and dependency-neglect docket. Prior to joining the bench, Kamada was in private practice for ten years. His practice included a variety of areas of litigation including dependency and neglect, family law, civil litigation, and criminal defense. Kamada is a local graduate of Valley High School in Gilcrest, Colorado School of Mines (B.S. Engineering-Mechanical), and the University of Denver Sturm School of Law (Juris Doctor). 

Says Burnham Law Founding Partner Todd Burnham: “I worked with Ryan Kamada prior to his ascension to the bench. His work ethic and commitment to his craft have formed the basis for his lasting and well-earned reputation for excellence. Having him on board means our clients will now derive the benefit of an unparalleled breadth of talent: an in-house former judge, a handful of DA’s, Child Family Investigators, and seasoned attorneys. This mix of talent epitomizes our firm’s creed, Colorado Family Law: Elevated.”

British pastry purveyor adding Cherry Creek location

The British are coming to Cherry Creek.

Pasty Republic has signed a three-year lease on 750 square feet at 2615 E. 3rd Ave., and owner Matt Cherry said he plans to begin serving up the savory Cornish packages — “basically big empanadas,” in his words — by early September.

“The Cherry Creek neighborhood is a great place for us because of what we do — gourmet fast food,” Cherry said. “Our product is quick, already hot and ready to rock, so it’s a fantastic match for the business community on a tight schedule. It’s an opportunity to market more to office workers.”

Pasty Republic was founded on Tennyson Street by Jon Walker and Sam Elhindi, who added the “Pasty Bus” within a year, Cherry said. The truck is also stocked with pasties made in Berkeley.

“One of the interesting things about the pasty business is that it’s extremely labor-intensive,” Cherry said. “We hand-lay all our dough, we hand-fold it, we chop all our ingredients — there’s a ton of labor involved. The truck’s been helpful because it’s another revenue source without much more labor investment.”
