Debbie Kuehn — better known as “The Cookie Lady” in downtown Denver — liked to say that she changed the world one cookie at a time. After her death on June 28, we mourned the loss of both Kuehn and her Santa Fe Cookie Co. treats. But the world still needs changing, so Kuehn’s niece Alexis McLean is taking up the call.
It’s just about fall, which means we’re all on the clock for drinking-on-the-patio season. If that’s you, head to the top of the Le Méridien hotel while you can. That’s where 54thirty, Denver’s tallest open-air rooftop bar, just opened on Sept. 14. Perched on the 20th floor, 54thirty offers great city and mountain views to go along with its fun cocktail menu.
If you’ve lived in the Denver area for long, you probably remember the Spicy Pickle sandwich shop. After a rapid franchise expansion, the Pickle found itself in, well, a pickle, and closed the last of its Colorado restaurants in 2014. But you can’t keep a good pickle down, and I’m happy to report that the Pickle is back! The official grand opening is Friday, Sept. 22, but it’s open and serving most of the menu right now.
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".
