L. PRIMA — Janina’s Café is located in one of the many mini-mall-like complexes in the Burnside Industrial Park. If you didn’t know it was there, you would drive right by. But if you, like the thousands commuting to Burnside daily, work in the area, you’ve likely come to love this gem of a breakfast and lunch spot. Serving a menu of sourced mostly lunch favorites like soup and sandwiches, it’s the Polish food that sets Janina’s apart. The café is quite small with but a few tables lining a window.
A. BAKER — Walking down Argyle Street this summer, one can’t help but feel badly for the businesses dealing with the entire street being torn up for construction. That being said, some of those businesses are making the best of a challenging situation. East of Grafton looks to be one such businesses. On approach, the facade of the restaurant is beautiful and clean with lots of light-coloured wood, a nice striped awning and a flower box spilling over with purple and yellow blossoms.
L. PRIMA – Some of the best ethnic restaurants in the city are in strip malls, so I’m a tad excited to find Byblos Lebanese Cuisine in a strip mall on Portland Street. The nondescript exterior transforms into an inviting space with modern light fixtures, a mix of light wood floors and dark wood tables, and an interesting combination of rust and teal-coloured walls. The open kitchen and perfectly arranged bar at the back add visual interest.
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 Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
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, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
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".
