It hardly seems possible but Fearing’s, Dean Fearing’s eponymous restaurant at the Ritz-Carlton Dallas, is ten years old this month. What seemed like an audacious venture in 2007 has not only survived, but thrived. To celebrate, it is offering a special menu (in parallel with the regular menu) built around favorite recipes from its first decade. The menu is available through the end of September.
Now is the time of year when a lot of families want to get away for a long weekend, or even an entire week. The Texas Hill Country is the destination for millions of visitors each year, and it hosts the country’s second most popular wine trail after Napa’s Highway 29. But where to stay? Consider Tapatio Springs Hill Country Resort at the southern end of the Hill Country, just north of San Antonio in the hills above Boerne.
When the history of the storied pinot noir grape in California comes to be written, I would put money on the Olivet Lane Vineyard getting a mention. I was uniquely privileged recently when a member of the family that owns it, Alexia Pellegrini, invited me to a tasting of the family’s own wines from the vineyard. The label is Olivet Lane Estate. The family also makes a line of wines from non-estate fruit under the Pellegrini label.
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".
