You may know that San Diego is home to at least 36 fantastic breweries. Green Flash Brewery is a great example, and we are lucky that they opened a 4,000 square foot tasting room in the heart of biotech near Sorrento Valley. They have 30 of their great beers on tap, picnic tables outside (which remind me of the happy hours we had back in the genomics boom), and gourmet food trucks which visit nightly.
We thought it would be fun to have an informal happy hour from 5:30-8:30 p.m. October 26th. There will be no admission charge and beer and food will be available for purchase. We’ll have a contest to see who can collect the most business cards (win a $50 gift certificate from Avitus Group), and Comprendia staff will be circulating with iPads to review your LinkedIn profile and give tips. Additionally, Avitus Group gives free business valuations and will answer one HR question for free, speak with Widney Hawthorne at the event for more information.
