Spring training is one of the best reasons to live in Arizona, allowing fans from all over the world to sprawl out on the grass or get up close to their favorite players, and bask in the perfect weather. After you've gotten your fill at a game or two, you're looking for a bite to eat, or maybe you want to grab a drink with friends. Some stadiums feature an abundance of options (Scottsdale Stadium, Peoria Sports Complex), while others take a bit more hunting (Maryvale Stadium, Goodyear Ballpark).
James Beard Awards have been tough to come by in Arizona, but a little bit of dogged determination has earned a coveted national nod for a unique element of Arizona’s food culture. El Guero Canelo, Tucson’s most famous purveyor of Sonoran hot dogs, is among five recipients of the 2018 America’s Classics Awards, bestowed by the New York-based James Beard Foundation. Daniel Contreras, who owns the Mexican restaurant, operates three locations in Tucson and one in west Phoenix.
That probably isn’t fair, but it’s also unavoidable, particularly when your trophy shelf looks like Alex Stratta’s. It seems like an eternity ago — about two years, if you can believe it — that we learned Stratta would return to Phoenix, where he first started amassing a collection of hardware awarded to a precious few in the industry.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
