Vegas never takes a day or night off, so finding a Christmas feast here is as easy as finding a blackjack table or a nightclub full of drunk people on a Tuesday. There are fantastic feasts all over the Strip this Christmas, and here are a festive five that are worth booking.
The rise of new-school Filipino food has been one of L.A.’s most delicious 2017 trends, thanks to glorious spots like Lasa and Sari Sari Store. So if you’re inspired to celebrate the holidays with lechon or longganisa instead of a standing rib roast, we totally understand. (Also, could you please invite us over?) And for dessert, L.A.’s new FrankieLucy Bakeshop has you sorted.
The most memorable steak I’ve eaten in Los Angeles is the grilled California Holstein strip at downtown’s Shibumi. Divided into two sections, one topped with fresh wasabi and the other topped with Japanese nara-zuke pickles, this was a steal at $28 when I tried it in November 2016. Today, it’s still a steal at $30. It’s better than steaks I’ve had that were five times the price. The California Holstein strip, which I enjoyed again last week, is astonishingly beefy and beautifully marbled.
@RidingShotgunLA Literally dreamt about #POTluckLA last night. There were multiple flash mobs and smiles and oxtails and cupcakes and you holding things down and finding people seats. And then a couple people got naked. It was fun
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".
