Lost in the Sauce: Barr's DOJ shut down investigations of Trump and admin officials

Welcome to Lost in the Sauce, keeping you caught up on political and legal news that often gets buried in distractions and theater… or a global health crisis.
Housekeeping:

Post-election

On Saturday, Trump announced on Twitter that he has put his personal lawyer Rudy Giuliani in charge of his campaign's long-shot post-election legal challenges. Other people on the team include Joseph diGenova, Victoria Toensing, Sidney Powell, and Jenna Ellis.
  • Giuliani worked with a Russian agent to smear Biden. diGenova and Toensing tried to get the Justice Department to drop charges against corrupt Ukraine oligarch Dmytro Firtash. Powell represents Michael Flynn and champions "deep state" conspiracies. Ellis said gay marriage leads to pedophilia.
NYT: Mr. Trump turned to Mr. Giuliani earlier on Friday in reaction to the latest setback he faced in court, this one relating to votes in Maricopa County, Arizona… A half-dozen other Trump advisers have described Mr. Giuliani’s efforts as counterproductive and said that he was giving the president unwarranted optimism about what could happen… In an Oval Office meeting with aides on Thursday, Mr. Trump put Mr. Giuliani on speakerphone so the others could hear him. He angrily accused the aides of not telling the president the truth
Giuliani’s conspiracy-riddled rant at Four Seasons Total Landscaping was so disastrous that it “scared off many of the lawyers” recruited to argue election-related lawsuits. Politico: “Campaign officials described the episode as disastrous...there are widespread concerns within Trumpworld and GOP circles that Giuliani’s antics are thwarting the president’s legal machinery from within.”
Two major law firms have withdrawn from Trump campaign cases as his legal challenges crumble. Arizona’s largest law firm Snell & Wilmer dumped the RNC and Trump campaign effort to challenge votes in Maricopa County. Porter Wright Morris & Arthur is abandoning Trump’s attempt to block Pennsylvania's popular vote for Joe Biden.
  • In one day (Friday), nine cases meant to attack President-elect Joe Biden's win in key states were denied or dropped - seven in Pennsylvania, one in Arizona, and one in Michigan.
The new federal chief information security officer, Camilo Sandoval, has already taken leave from his day job to participate in a pro-Trump effort to hunt for evidence of voter fraud in the battleground states. The group, Voter Integrity Fund, is a newly formed Virginia-based group that is analyzing ballot data and cold-calling voters. Sandoval was officially appointed on Nov. 4, 2020, but lists his starting date at October on his personal LinkedIn page.
WaPo: Sandoval is part of a hastily convened team led by Matthew Braynard, a data specialist who worked on Trump’s 2016 campaign. Another participant is Thomas Baptiste, an adviser to the deputy secretary of the Interior Department who also took a leave to work on the project. Braynard said in an interview that several other government officials on leave are also assisting the effort, but he declined to identify them.
Media’s role:
  • Facebook Cut Traffic To Leading Liberal Pages Just Before The Election: Liberal page administrators who spoke with BuzzFeed News said that their reach declined by as much as 70%, and still hasn’t recovered.
  • Facebook Live Spread Election Conspiracies And Russian State-Controlled Content Despite Employee Fears: The social network’s live video tool has recommended videos featuring misinformation and the hyperpartisan views of Trump allies leading up to and following election day in the US.
  • In the week after the election, Trump’s postings dominated Facebook, accounting for the 10 most engaged status updates in the United States, and 22 of the top 25. “I WON THIS ELECTION, BY A LOT!” was his top post.
  • YouTube Is Doing Very Little to Stop Election Misinformation From Spreading
  • Social media app Parler receives financial backing from conservative hedge-fund investor Robert Mercer and his daughter Rebekah, The Wall Street Journal reported. Parler turned into a kind of de facto home for conservatives’ protests against the election— including the persistent “Stop the Steal” campaign— after the race was called for former Vice President Joe Biden. Several high-profile conservative social media personalities encouraged people to abandon Twitter and Facebook because of their moderation policies, and instead follow them on Parler.

Transition

Emily Murphy, the head of the General Services Administration, still hasn’t signed the official letter that would allow the incoming Biden team to formally begin the transition. House Democrats are assessing options to force the GSA’s hand, which could include summoning Murphy to the Hill to testify or suing her. “Obviously, Congress could file suit against the GSA administrator for failing to do her duty. We could seek to get a court to, in fact, issue an order
Her ascertainment is the legally necessary precursor to the government’s assistance to the Biden-Harris Presidential Transition Team. It releases $6.3 million dollars to the team, which is funded by public and private money; a loan of expanded federal office space and equipment; access to government agencies that will begin sharing information and records about ongoing activities, plans and vulnerabilities; national security briefings for the president; and other support.
  • The Office of the Director of National Intelligence recently confirmed that it is not providing national security briefings to the president-elect. The Defense Department has also reportedly indicated that it will not meet with the Biden-Harris transition team until Murphy formally affirms the apparent winner.
One of the officials fired in Trump’s latest purge was helping prepare for the transition to the new administration. USAID Deputy Administrator Bonnie Glick was removed abruptly to make way for a Trump loyalist after she had been supportive of transition planning, including the preparation of a 440-page manual for the next administration.
The GSA’s refusal to enact the transition has locked Biden’s team out of crucial Covid-19 pandemic data and government agency contacts. The president-elect’s Covid-19 task force has been trying to work around the federal government by connecting with governors and the health community.
  • The head of Operation Warp Speed, Moncef Slaoui, called on the White House to allow contact with the Biden team, saying “It is a matter of life and death for thousands of people.”
White House’s Office of Management and Budget is considering 145 new regulations and other policy changes they could enact before Biden’s inauguration - rules that will be challenging to undo once they are finalized. Critics and supporters of the administration say they expect a final burst of regulations to be finalized in the weeks before Jan. 20.
The rules under development include policies that the incoming Biden administration would probably oppose, such as new caps on the length of foreign student visas; restrictions on the Environmental Protection Agency’s use of scientific research; limits on the EPA’s consideration of the benefits of regulating air pollutants; and a change that would make it easier for companies to treat workers as independent contractors, rather than employees with more robust wage protections.
Last week, both Secretary of State Mike Pompeo and White House trade adviser Peter Navarro said they’re preparing for a second Trump term. “There will be a smooth transition to a second Trump administration,” Pompeo said during a news conference Tuesday afternoon (clip). Pompeo then doubled down on Fox News (clip). “We are moving forward here at the White House under the assumption there will be a second Trump term,” Navarro said on Fox Business Friday (clip).

DOJ interference

Attorney General William Barr stopped career prosecutors in DOJ’s Public Integrity Section from investigating whether President Trump broke any laws related to his conduct with Ukraine last year. The section was initially given the green light to pursue “a potentially explosive inquiry” into Trump, but after the Senate acquitted the president during impeachment proceedings, Barr sent the case to the U.S. attorney’s office in Brooklyn.
Prosecutors in DOJ’s Public Integrity Section were also prevented from bringing charges against former interior secretary Ryan Zinke by political appointees atop the Justice Department. Deputy Attorney General Jeffrey Rosen told prosecutors that they needed to gather more evidence and refine the case against Zinke for lying to Interior investigators.
  • The investigation into Zinke stemmed from his decision to block two Native American tribes—the Mashantucket Pequot and Mohegan—from opening a casino in Connecticut. Zinke’s office had been lobbied heavily by MGM Resorts International, which had been planning to open its own casino very close to where the tribes intended to break ground.
Sixteen assistant U.S. attorneys specially assigned to monitor malfeasance in the 2020 election urged Barr on Friday to rescind his memo allowing election-fraud investigations before results are certified. "It was developed and announced without consulting non-partisan career professionals in the field and at the Department. Finally, the timing of the Memorandum's release thrusts career prosecutors into partisan politics," the prosecutors wrote.
An internal Justice Department investigation found that federal prosecutors who oversaw a controversial non-prosecution deal with Jeffrey Epstein in 2008 exercised “poor judgment” but did not break the law. “They just say he used poor judgment, and that's their way of basically letting everyone off the hook while offering some sort of an olive branch to the victims that we acknowledge weren't treated perfectly,” said Brad Edwards, who sued the DOJ in 2008 on behalf of Epstein accusers.

Immigration news

Eastern District of New York Judge Nicholas Garaufis (Clinton-appointee) ruled that Chad Wolf was not legally serving as acting Homeland Security secretary when he signed rules limiting DACA program applications and renewals. Therefore, in a win for Dreamers and immigration activists, Garaufis said the changes were invalid.
The judge described an illegitimate shuffling of leadership chairs at the Department of Homeland Security, the agency responsible for immigration enforcement, for the predicament of Wolf's leadership and that of his predecessor, Kevin McAleenan.
"Based on the plain text of the operative order of succession," Garaufis wrote in the Saturday ruling, "neither Mr. McAleenan nor, in turn, Mr. Wolf, possessed statutory authority to serve as Acting Secretary. Therefore the Wolf Memorandum was not an exercise of legal authority."
  • There's a renewed push to get Chad Wolf confirmed as Homeland Security secretary -- a position in which he's been serving in an acting capacity for a yearr -- before Inauguration Day. In the past week, Homeland Security officials spoke to Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell's office about bringing the nomination to a floor vote in the coming weeks.
Within the last six months, as the coronavirus pandemic gripped the US, the Trump administration filed 75 lawsuits to seize private land along the US-Mexico border for the border wall." People right now are having to choose between their health and their homes," said Ricky Garza, a staff attorney at the Texas Civil Rights Project, a legal advocacy group.
After a series of price increases, Trump’s border project will cost taxpayers $20 million per mile of border fence. A review of federal spending data shows more than 200 contract modifications, at times awarded within just weeks or months after the original contracts, have increased the cost of the border wall project by billions of dollars since late 2017.
DHS has expelled unaccompanied immigrant children from the US border more than 13,000 times since March, using the coronavirus as an excuse to deny children their right to asylum. Previously, unaccompanied children were sent to government-run shelters as they attempted to pursue their asylum cases.
Migrant children from Central America are being expelled to Mexico, where they have no family connections. The expulsions not only put children in danger - the policy violates a diplomatic agreement with Mexico that only Mexican children and others who had adult supervision could be pushed back into Mexico after attempting to cross the border.
The House Judiciary Committee released a report on the Trump administration’s policy of separating families at the border, revealing that the federal agency that cares for migrant children was not told about the policy. The chaos contributed to the inability to later reunite parents and children.
The Trump administration is trying to deport several women who allege they were mistreated by a Georgia gynecologist at an immigration detention center. Hours after one detained woman spoke to federal investigators about forced hysterectomies at a Georgia detention center, she said ICE told her that it had lifted a hold on her deportation and she faced “imminent” removal. Six former patients who complained about Dr. Mahendra Amin had already been deported.
Northern District of Illinois Judge Gary Feinerman (Obama-appointee) blocked a key Trump administration policy that allowed officials to deny green cards to immigrants who might need public assistance Advocates who had feared that the policy would harm tens of thousands of poor people, particularly those affected by widespread job loss because of the coronavirus pandemic.

Miscellaneous

Microsoft said it has detected attempts by state-backed Russian and North Korean hackers to steal valuable data from leading pharmaceutical companies and vaccine researchers. “Among the targets, the majority are vaccine makers that have COVID-19 vaccines in various stages of clinical trials.”
Two census takers told The AP that their supervisors pressured them to enter false information into a computer system about homes they had not visited so they could close cases during the waning days of the once-a-decade national headcount.
The Supreme Court on Tuesday signaled it’s unlikely to tear down Obamacare over a Republican-backed lawsuit challenging the landmark health care law. Chief Justice John Roberts and Trump appointee Justice Brett Kavanaugh strongly questioned whether the elimination of the mandate penalty made the rest of the law invalid. Kavanaugh appeared to signal on several occasions that he favored leaving the rest of the law intact if the mandate is struck.
Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton (R) was sued last week by four whistleblowers claiming that he abused his office to benefit himself, a woman with whom he was said to have had an affair, and the wealthy donor who employs her before retaliating against the members of his staff who reported him to the FBI.
The Trump administration is rushing plans to auction drilling rights in the U.S. Arctic National Wildlife Refuge before the inauguration of Biden, who has vowed to block oil exploration in the rugged Alaska wilderness. Biden’s efforts could be complicated if the Trump administration sells drilling rights first. Formally issued oil and gas leases on federal land are government contracts that can’t be easily yanked.

Moving to Maricopa soon. Questions.

I am on mobile, so forgive my errors. Actually typing this at true grit as we speak.
Mid thirties couple with a 7 year old daughter thinking of moving from Denver to Maricopa, within the next 2 months. Just trying to get an idea of the local demographics, culture, and school situation out here. We've got our eye on a few homes, but nothing solid yet.
Mostly hearing the commute to Phoenix is a mess that can take up to an hour and a half. Also hearing that aside from bars and the casino, there isn't much to do out here. Anyone that can shed some light, maybe sway me one way or another on this area would be appreciated. Thanks.

Thinking of moving to Maricopa, is this place too good to be true?

Housing is very affordable, found tons we could buy now. But is it really a nice town? Is the commute up 347 to the shopping and stuff on the outskirts of Phoenix a bad drive traffic wise?
How is the crime, and communities? Asian markets? How are the casinos? Particularly the Harrahs in Maricopa, but how are the ones just north on 347 as you approach Phoenix Premium Outlets too?
Anyways, let me know a bit more if you can since we are seriously considering it.

THANK YOU Phoenicians!!!

THANK YOU ALL for the fabulous information!!!! My husband and I are very excited and my daughter keeps asking me if we're going to the Order of the Phoenix yet lol (she likes the Harry Potter movie a bit, lol). Either way we are super excited.
I think the name of the hospital I was looking at was Maricopa something and there seems to be several of them throughout the area. Glad you told me it wasn't actually IN Maricopa, lol.
Central Phoenix, Chandler and Gilbert are our top three, along with Ahwatukee and Tempe. We have a bit of time--we wouldn't move until April or May of next year, but a visit is coming up in the next few months. We're planning it now. A good week should get us to all the areas we want to see, shouldn't it?
To the person who said Phoenix wouldn't be a bother as far as crime--you are correct, lol. Every single day someone gets shot and killed in Memphis, hell every hour damn near. So no, we do not fear crime anywhere else. Memphis leads the US in murders, even though it is not nearly as big as Phoenix or Chicago, but for our size, it is number one in shooting deaths in the whole country.
I was blown away about the pollution in Phoenix, wow I wasn't expecting it to be polluted. I've heard from several people here who used to live in Phoenix who kept telling me the air quality would be great for my husband's asthma since the heat is dry desert heat but to hear natives tell me to rethink that... wow man.
I saw an awesome list on Movoto.com about the different food choices in Phoenix, and am looking forward to that. I am a bit of a foodie, lol. Any good soul food places out that way?
Another draw to the area is the fact that Phoenix has casinos and Las Vegas is a four and a half hour drive away or an hour and a half flight. I look forward to MUCH cheaper flights from a much bigger city.

I have two days to get from Los Angeles to Las Vegas...

What do you all think about this route with the overnight stop at a no-tell-motel in China Lake? Please ignore the little loops around some areas, I entered city names and Google Maps makes sure I actually see the city center.

Any motorcycle riders or clubs out there?

Hey friends! I live in chandler but I come to Maricopa a few times a week.
I usually ride my motorcycle, to save gas and it’s an easy fun drive. I’ve seen another biker or 2 while riding and usually give the wave. But how many of you are on Reddit?
What places do you guys like to ride to around town? I usually ride to the casino, then A1 pawn and check out if they have any cool stuff for sale. Haven’t been to goodwill yet but maybe I will today.

[Takeover] Insider Spring Training Guide: The Los Angeles Angels and Tempe Diablo Stadium

Introduction and Stadium Info

You may or may not have heard but Spring Training is rapidly approaching. As an Arizona resident and baseball fan, it is my favorite time of the year. Half of the baseball world is contained in the 45 mile stretch between Hohokam Stadium in Mesa and Surprise Stadium in The Most Inconveniently Located And Accessible Town Ever. Half of the Cactus League's 10 parks are within 15 minutes of each other. Of course, I don't have enough time or space to write up each ballpark here so I will focus on providing you all the information I know about my Angels' complex, Tempe Diablo Stadium.
A Brief History
The stadium is situated on the south side of Twin Butte and first saw Spring Training action in 1969 when it was home to the Seattle Pilots/Milwaukee Brewers for four seasons. In 1993, after 31 seasons in Palm Springs, the California Angels packed up and moved into Tempe Diablo Stadium. In the mid-2000's, the stadium underwent a wide $20M renovation and it was rededicated in 2006. The renovation was included in a new lease that will keep the Angels in Tempe through 2025.
Practice Field and Stadium
One of the main beauties of Spring Training - the ability to be up-close with the minor leaguers - is certainly seen in the backfields by Tempe Diablo Stadium. Like most Cactus League ballparks - the exceptions being Scottsdale Stadium (Giants) and Goodyear Ballpark (Reds/Indians) - the Angels minor league complex is also directly on-site. The 75 acre complex includes six full practice fields as well as a practice infield. During workouts in the weeks before Spring Training and into the exhibition season, the major leaguers will practice on the two fields closest to the stadium while the minor leaguers stay around the four adjacent fields and the minor league games are usually held on the north-east practice field of the four adjacent ones. As for the stadium itself, the dimensions of the park are: 340LF - 420CF - 360RF. The Angels list the capacity to be 9,315 but I have commonly seen posted attendance numbers over that.
TL;DR: Four fields with MiLB players, two with MLB players, and an old but very functional ballpark with a lot of nostalgic Spring Training charm.

Game Day Info

Tickets
The Angels use dynamic pricing to sell their tickets, so the prices will vary with demand. There are five regular ticket sections: Home Plate MVP, Field MVP, Field Box, Grandstand, and Lawn (G/A). The base prices for these sections with the dynamic pricing model - so assume regular demand - are $50, $40, $25, $20, $15. There are also All-You-Can-Eat Seats that run about $50. As for my advice, I would bullet point it as this:
Seats
I'll be referencing this seat map for this section. Here are a few things that should help you find where you want to sit:
Autographs
This is definitely the best park in the Cactus League for getting autographs. It's easiest if I post this diagram and then explain. The Angels players take BP on the practice field closest to the stadium and walk back along a pathway that is lined by a fence only about three feet (as seen in orange) in height and the majority of players will stop to sign for fans gathered there. Inside the stadium, the players will sometimes sign after their warm-ups along the LF and RF lines. If you are there when the visiting bus arrives, you can camp along this four foot wall (red circle) by the east parking lot where you can try your luck.
Food
Outside food isn't allowed in the stadium but water is. I feel like I've brought in my own food before and nothing was said, but do it at your own risk. This isn't the greatest ballpark for food options either - that would be Salt River Fields - however there are a few decent options. Aside from your standard hot dogs/nachos/peanuts/pretzels fare - hey, that may be all you want - there some food tents out by the berm in left field. There you can get street tacos, barbecued beef/chicken/pork, and hamburgers. There is also a covered pavilion at the end of concourse on the right field side with a grill and picnic tables. And, yes, like every other Cactus League park, there are some Angelo's Italian Ice stands. I'd say just eat something before you go and maybe get a sorbet from the Angelo's stand around the 6th inning. That always hits the spot.
Parking
The soon-to-be formerly best kept secret about Tempe Diablo Stadium is the free street parking. You can pay $5 to park in one of the lots next to the stadium or if you arrive I'd say about an hour before game-time, you can pretty easily find free street parking just to the south of the stadium. I would suggest to try and not arrive at game-time anyway because the area around the stadium can get a little congested and parking is limited. Definitely arrive early if it's a weekend game or premier matchup. There is also a trolley that runs for free from Mill Ave to Tempe Diablo Stadium and Cubs Park.
Other Notes
TL;DR: Arrive moderately early to avoid traffic (it's like still being in LA/OC), eat before you go, and bum a seat on the first base side with a lawn ticket.

Around the Park

Things to Do
The ballpark has a great location. Though it's not located in the heart of Old Town Scottsdale like Scottsdale Stadium, there is still a lot to do around the park. There are three malls within seven miles of the stadium and the famous Mill Avenue District. It is very closely located to the airport and the Phoenix Zoo is also close by. There is a casino on the Salt River Pima–Maricopa Indian Community within 15 minutes. Old Town Scottsdale and Scottsdale Fashion Square (where ESPN broadcasted their recent Super Bowl coverage from) is also about a 15 minute drive. If you wish to channel your inner April Ludgate, there is also a historic cemetery on the north-west side of the butte that the stadium is built on.
Places to Eat
There are also several great restaurants around the stadium. I would simply recommend this guide, the best I've seen, if you're planning on visiting Arizona at all for Spring Training. As for specifically Tempe Diablo, most anywhere listed under the "Scottsdale/Old Town," "Tempe," or "Mesa" headings would be within 15 minutes of the stadium. I would also add Little Miss BBQ to that list if I were writing it.
I hope this guide has been helpful and informative and if you have any questions about this park that I somehow didn't address, let me know! I'm also happy to answer questions anytime in regards to Spring Training in Arizona so feel free to tag me or send a PM.

As it's revealed in an article in NYT, Trump is still asking Mike Flynn and Paul Manafort not to say anything to Mr. Mueller about his collusion with the Russians. He's dangling the word "pardon" as a bet so that they don't implicate him in the Russia inquiry.

As the days are rolling by , more deadly revelations are coming out on the surface as to the extent of Trump's involvement with the Russians for the first election of his life.
With the publication of this latest article that appeared in NYT today which clearly stated without any shade of doubt that Trump told his lawyer Mr. Dowd to tell them something like this "I'll pardon you later on if you keep your mouth shut" .
That probably is the reason why 2 of the 5 of his most intimate people, Mike Flynn and Paul Manafort who had been charged with obstruction of justice by the Special Counsel Mr. Mueller,didn't reveal yet about Trump's collusion with the Russian govt in his last campaign.
So there should be no doubt to any American's mind that Trump who himself 'obstructed justice' many times, did it again by offering to use his pardoning power, the same power he misused to 'illegally' pardon Joe Arpaio the ex-sheriff of Maricopa county in Arizona just to sene a signal to those two men about what would happen to them if they listened to their boss.
But the problem is Trump doesn't understand because he never read the constitution since he perhaps copied his answers in all the examinations in his schools and colleges that our elders granted the pardoning powers to the presidents so that they use it only in extremely rare cases.
Due to Trump's lack of knowledge in anything about our country's rules and regulations, he wanted to use this important power as vested in the constitution, only to stop these two men from testifying. In other words he ordered them to just keep their fucking mouths shut in front of the prosecutors.
Well some people might like to know how we know so much about our illegitimate president, Trump ?
We know because the day he announced his candidacy for presidency in the basement of Trump Tower in the month of June in 2015, most of us on the left knew right away who he was and what he'd do if he was allowed to proceed further on his quest to become the president.
But what we didn't realize then was the fact that there were millions of White minions who thought they got what they wanted: a clown or an asshole like them who would preserve the White rule in this country after a rule by a Black president called Obama whom they hated only because of the color of his dark skin just like Trump did.
So no wonder those ass clowns voted for another ass clown called Donald J. Trump standing in lines in front of all the voting booths in the country under scorching sun as it was in most of the states in 2016 although it was the month of November.
And Trump, who never said sorry for being a racist bastard just like his racist father was, never apologized to the Black renters whom he turned away from many of his apartments in New York.
Nor he ever said sorry to the Black employees and patrons of color whom he herded in the windowless back rooms of his casinos in Atlantic City,NJ, as soon as he entered there with his first wife Ivana whom he paid no money for managing his businesses just because she was from one of those poor east European countries just like his third wife Melania is from.
For Trump, only the White citizens from White western nations like Norway should be allowed in this country instead of Haiti and other African countries which he considers as 'shithole' countries.
A real asshole !

I’ll turn this one over to u/Deets327:
Food near the stadium: Westgate Entertainment District is just north of University of Phoenix Stadium (easy walking distance), and holds several restaurants and places to have a drink.
The good: Yard House. A touch on the pricey side, but great above-average quality pub food and classier entrees. Huge selection of beer. Tough to get a table on gameday.
Whiskey Rose. Sports bar atmosphere with slightly country aesthetic. Not much in the way of beer choices, but good gameday specials and solid appetizers. Really cute waitresses.
Saddle Ranch. Lots of soccer moms cutting loose on the weekends. Decent food, okay beers and highly-country atmosphere. Decent enough if you can ignore the music.
Hell's Half Acre. Good selection of beer, waitresses dance on poles, good gameday specials on shots and beers. Busy on gameday. Country/Metal atmosphere.
Bar Louie. Pretty standard fare. Decent back-up if the wait for Yard House is too long.
Mama Gina's. Decent pizza and Italian fare. A little too heavy for gameday in my opinion, but a decent enough, family-friendly atmosphere if you're bringing the kids.
Salt Taco y Tequila. More upper-class than Calico Jacks (see below), with solid margarita selection. Less a place to grab a quick bite and more of a sit-down atmosphere. Good food.
The bad: Calico Jacks. Shitty beer selection, rushed wait staff and average-at-best Mexican food. Avoid it on the weekends, as it turns into a loud, crowded dance club.
McFadden's. Faux-Irish "pub" that also turns into a dance club on the weekends. Okay beer selection, but overpriced. Caters very strongly to away fans on gameday.
u/smashingpimp01 also strongly recommended Carolina's
I'm just going to add, last year I flew to Arizona and asked in this subbreddit what places to check out. Someone recommended Carolinas for Mexican food. It was life changing. Me and my cousin still talk about it. So much so that we actually added an extra day to this years trip just to go there since they are closed on Sunday.
Also, according to u/cardinals1996, McFadden's has been known to steal their customer's credit card information.
Alright, I know how to get there, where to stay, and where to eat. So, where can I buy my tickets?
Hint: Buy them in advance.
Stadium Website
Seating Chart
StubHub
TicketMaster
SeatGeek
Make sure to buy your tickets well in advance of the season so you can have them ready, and use caution when buying from a separate dealer and/or an individual. People may be trying to scam you.
Well, the logistics of my trip are set, but I have a few extra days in the area set aside to explore. What should I do?
u/cwdBeebs had some ideas:
It kind of depends on how long you are staying for and how you are getting here. If you are making a road trip out, a lot of people love Sedona. It's between here and Flagstaff. I'm on mobile and can't link but just do an image search on it. If you like outdoors stuff, you'll probably live it. The Indian Casinos are pretty nice too. A few of them are quite a bit more than just a casino. Talking Stick Resort and Wildhorse Resort are my favorites. Talking Stick also has a pretty good golf course. I've lived in Arizona my whole life so if anyone has any questions or wants travel tips, feel free to PM me or ask here.
Gameday! How to I get to the stadium so I can watch my team get demolished by the clearly better team, and leave disappointed?
IMPORTANT
For anyone that hasn't been to a game before, please PLEASE know that they will not allow any purses inside the stadium. The only ones they allow are clear ones. My girlfriend basically uses what I call a big wallet when we go. Anyway, you will have to walk back to your car (odds are that'll be a long ass walk btw) and leave it there.

If you are traveling to the stadium, make sure to read this guide to get some basic rules/tips/etiquette for your visit to the stadium.
Some important parts of the guide include:

Looking to move. Could use a hand on jobs/areas to live.

Basics: Currently living in an overpriced less than stellar apartment in west Vegas. Looking to get out and live somewhere I haven't yet. This city and its lack of (non-touristy) stuff to do is dragging me down. Current lease expires in (I think) June 2012. Looking to move about then.
Job wise: I've worked security my whole career. I've got about 7 years experience in casinos, HOA's, industrial, corporate, etc. Certified CPAED/First Aid. Looking for similar work. I need at least $15/hr to make the move viable. I could probably settle for $14/hr if company had good benefits/was close to where I lived. Do you know any security companies that will be hiring in that range? Allied Barton, G4S, Securitas, etc? What about Gila River and Wild Horse Pass casinos? Are there others in the PHX metro that I haven't heard of?
Alternately, any office jobs that pay decent? I can speak/read/write English, and am fluent in MS products and some basic Linux. I'd like to get into an IT department, but don't really have enough history to get in.
Housing: Currently in an 800ft2 apartment for about $670/mo in a less than ideal part of town. Looking for somewhere safe either same size or bigger for about the same rent. Pet friendly. Is there anything downtown in that range? For even a smaller unit? Is living in downtown PHX advisable?
TL;DR: I'm looking to move out of Las Vegas in June 2012. PHX is on my shortlist if I can find a job/apartment. Looking for a security or office/IT job around $15/hr and a pet friendly apartment between 600-800ft2 in a decent area for about $650-$750/mo. 7 years total security experience, almost 4 of that in a casino. Can anyone give me some suggestions?
Edit: Also, Maricopa. Caesars Entertainment has a casino there I could possibly transfer to. Harrah's Ak-Chin. What is Maricopa like? The wiki page is fairly sparse. Looks like there's some decent rental houses there for about what I'm looking to pay. And it's got a wal-mart. Does it have anything else?

A genuinely creepy post from an AskReddit thread - An encounter in an Indian Casino restroom.

Story is located here: http://www.reddit.com/AskReddit/comments/q0sgj/what_is_a_mystery_that_creeps_you_out_the_most/c3tvltr?context=3
Copy and pasted below:
Posted in a previous thread.
My friend worked at a Harrah's Casino in Maricopa, Arizona. Anyone familiar with the area knows that this particular casino is out in the middle of nowhere on the Native American reservation. Anyway my friend is a normal, emotionally stable white guy who is atheist. He was working late around 3AM on the casino floor. He is a night owl so he was wide awake since this is his normal shift. He is not a drug addict or one to make up bullshit stories.
So here he is in this empty casino walking into the vacant men's bathroom on the opposite side of the casino floor. He walks in, does his business in the urinal and turns around to go wash his hands when he notices someone standing at the sink staring into the mirror. He thinks to himself, "that's strange, I didn't even hear anybody walk in". He gets closer to a sink about 5 rows down and begins washing his hands. He glances over again to realize it was not a man that was standing at the sink but a woman in a red dress.
Right when he is about to say something about her using the wrong restroom this "woman" turns her head slowly towards him and he just stares at her kind of in disbelief thinking this chick must be drunk or blind to not realize she was in the men's bathroom. As her head slowly turns her eyes were a dark glowing red. He describes it as the red eye you would get when taking a photo of someone.
He freaks out, doesn't know what the fuck is happening and looks down to notice she doesn't have any legs, instead she has what he described as the bottom half of a deer for legs and she was walking on hooves. Anyway as this thing turns towards him it starts to move aggressively and my friend ran out of the bathroom obviously scared shitless. He had his buddy review the surveillance tape of that area around the bathroom but all that was seen was him going into the bathroom then him running out of the bathroom. He may have experienced this. ---- From csoimmpplleyx

Accommodation in Maricopa

Hey guys.
I'm staying in Maricopa in Spring of next year for one night and I'm trying to find accommodation, all I can see is the local casino though, is there anywhere else (Sort of on the cheap side) someone might be able to recommend me ?
I'm also in Tuscon the next night and would love some cheap recommendations for there as well.
Cheers guys
