Sam and Sara Harris ran Harris Delicatessen adjacent to St. John’s Ward, an immigrant slum later razed to build Nathan Phillips Square. But it was — at least in 1900 — when Toronto’s first Jewish restaurant opened. It’s hard to believe corned beef on rye was once exotic. The Yiddish-speaking Harrises imported kosher smoked meat from Chicago, given the lack of local products. But they prospered — and they got Torontonians hooked on smoked meat.
The painter-sculptor-photographer-vocalist-guitarist-restaurateur was a success starting in the 1960s, when he ran a coffee house/art gallery at 71 Yorkville Ave. during the neighbourhood’s hippie heyday. He died in his sleep at his home in Zadar, Croatia, on Aug. 8, his son Leo confirmed. Joso Spralja, a renowned folk musician who went on to found Yorkville seafood restaurant Joso’s, died at age 88.
La Palma is the place everybody wants to be. I watch passersby stop to peer through the garage windows. Around me are good-looking millennials in summer whites, sipping rosé and eating pizza with knives and forks. Even at 9:30 p.m., walk-ins are turned away. La Palma captures the zeitgeist with its Instagrammable plates and breezy Venice Beach style. Opened May 29 by Craig Harding and Alexandra Hutchison (Campagnolo), it is the restaurant of the moment.
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".
