WITH ITS SIZABLE population of struggling actors between gigs and muscle-for-hire fitness instructors, Los Angeles has always been kind to those who (with varying degrees of success) make their own schedule. “People are cobbling together careers out of what is essentially freelance work,” says Heather Sperline, a food media veteran who opened Silver Lake’s Botanica restaurant and market in May with former Daily Candy editor Emily Fiffer.
Some days, a hard rain’s a-gonna fall (maybe not so much in L.A.), and some days, it’s liquor that flows freely. To celebrate its new exhibit of Bob Dylan photographs, The Darkroom is inviting the public to an event with free Dylan-inspired cocktails on Thursday, February 5, from 7 p.m. to 10 p.m.
Christina Tosi brought the sweet life to Las Vegas last year when she opened the first West Coast outpost of Milk Bar at The Cosmopolitan. When she’s not slinging Crack Pies and boozy MilkQuakes, these are the sweet spots she loves to visit, on and off the Strip. Power Lunch: I’m not awesome at stopping for lunch, but if I’m with the team, we hit up In-N-Out or get a slice at Secret Pizza in the Cosmopolitan. For more of a “grownup” lunch, I’ve fallen hard for Milos—quick, super tasty and easy.
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 Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
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, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
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".
