WE ARE … so excited to share our May Business Spotlight featuring SDPSU’s own President, Marcy Yurick!
WE ARE so excited to share our San Diego Business Spotlight for the month of March, Heidi Hanna!
Heidi graduated in 1996 with a BA in Communications and is currently teaching at the Harvard Extension School. She is a respected author, speaker, researcher, and instructor who focuses on improving mental and brain health. She provides techniques for managing something many of us have become way too familiar with this past year … stress!
The Founder and Chief Energy Officer of Synergy Brain Fitness, she is also known as “The Stress Detective”. Her academy, webinars, training sessions, and tools help busy professionals, parents, and students to improve their relationship with stress. She also teaches us how to use the energy of stress to fuel positive change and often leans into the idea of “laughter is the best medicine”’
WE ARE so grateful for your insight and inspiration, Dr. Heidi! Be sure to check out her website and social media pages for more information on how you can become less stressed …. about stress!
Pretzels & Pints is located in the Arts District of North Park and is formerly known as the California Tap Room. This friendly neighborhood bar is owned by Penn State Alumna Lauren Reppa Iacoangelo (‘04 Marketing) and husband, John Paul, aka “Boomer”, who despite being a Pitt alum, is actually a really nice guy!
Lauren and Boomer bring one of our favorite East Coast traditions of hand-rolled soft pretzels to America’s Finest City and pair them with their signature beer cheese, a variety of mustards, and of course, some delicious local craft beers. They also offer a variety of pretzel sandwiches and pretzel pizzas! With both indoor and outdoor seating and TVs available, Pretzels & Pints makes any day game day featuring all the professional sports packages, as well as the Big 10, and provides a safe environment for cheering on your favorite team!
Lauren and Boomer have done a great job of bringing that Philly and East Coast vibe here to San Diego and promise to make you feel right at home! For more information, and to learn about their menu, happy hour, and daily specials, visit www.pretzelsandpints.com and follow them on social media!
