For a man destined to become president of a brewery, Allan Congar didn’t get off to a very good start. In 2004 he blew up his first attempt at brewing a porter at home. “I didn’t measure everything like I should have,” Congar said. “My wife kicked me out to go brew in the garage.”His wife Alicia forgave him though, and in 2015, the Tucson born-and-bred couple opened 1912 Brewing Co. on the west side with Allan as head brewer.
Jamillia Joseph placed a bowl on the table containing a single browned johnny cake. “It’s homemade bread that we deep fry,” Joseph said. “There’s not one person who doesn’t like johnny cakes.”The unassuming little cake is somewhere between a doughnut and a funnel cake — the crisp browned outside is hot from the oil, and the fluffy white middle, still steaming, is just slightly sweet. Guests entering Desert Island Eatery essentially enter Joseph’s kitchen.
“Working with local and heritage products tells an important story about where we live,” said Janos Wilder, James Beard Award-winner and executive chef at DOWNTOWN Kitchen + Cocktails. “They are the ingredients that provide the authentic and enduring flavors of our home.”If you look closely enough, food is everywhere in the Sonoran desert. It’s in the pods of mesquite trees, the pads of prickly pear cacti, and the fruits of even the tallest saguaro.
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".
