National Pretzel Day at Culinary Dropout
Tuesday, April 26
National Pretzel Day is this Tuesday, and Culinary Dropout is celebrating by donating 100 percent of the proceeds from its house-made soft pretzels and provolone fondue to the Angelman Syndrome Foundation. The fundraiser will be held at all three metro Phoenix locations, and is in honor of Brooklyn Flores, the 5-year-old daughter of one of Culinary Dropout's chefs. The Angelman Syndrome Foundation funds research for Angelman Syndrome, a genetic disorder that causes developmental disabilities and nerve-related symptoms.
