What gorgeous world is this, where 70-proof booze is practically a nutri-drink? Multi V is a, yes, vitamin-infused vodka, and it's being guzzled up by area restaurants and liquor stores alike. It's the brainchild of two local chaps who (no surprise) hatched the idea in college. “We were big vodka drinkers,” Jacek Wiltowski says of himself and partner Jesse Rochman, who attended Southern Illinois University together.
Already, Mathis Stitt, the executive chef at Veritas, is pondering the possibilities for the annual Veritas Pig Roast and Country Picnic, October 1 in Ellisville. It promises to be bigger and better than ever. “There may need to be two pigs this year,” says Stephanie Stitt, his business partner (and mother). But the beauty’s in the details, in all the accompaniments that the chef is pondering, in the embellishments that elevate the event from simple "porky picnic" to thrilling culinary adventure.
Are you a native St. Louisan? Yes, I was born in Pasadena Hills, moved to Crestwood until I was 12, then moved to Chesterfield where I lived until I got married. Currently, I live in Town & Country with my husband and two daughters. What are some of the best things about St. Louis? I love the fact that it’s a small ‘big town.’ We have everything that lots of larger cities do: major league sports and cultural events, rich history and great restaurants.
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".
