Champagne and sparkling wines are the confetti of beverages. The presence of these luxurious potions can elevate a mundane moment into a special one with the pop of a cork. The rush of bubbles pouring into a glass can rev up a romantic moment, so they are a perfect addition to any Valentine’s Day rendezvous. Ashley Price from Provisions Fine Beverage Purveyors recommends some beautiful bubbles that pack a playful punch no matter your budget.
The day-to-day of being married isn’t always filled to the brim with romance and rainbows. Woven within every couple’s origin story is not only the “how,” but also the “why.” Five couples took a moment from their busy lives to talk about how they met and what they love about each other. Almost like an online dating commercial, Jill Croka’s first date through EHarmony turned out to be her last. That’s because she met Adam Murphy. After talking online, they decided to meet for happy hour.
With holiday festivities behind us, it’s time to take a more functional approach to cocktailing. Eschewing the frills and offsetting the chills, coffee cocktails are uniquely qualified to pack this one-two punch. The star-tenders over at Hodges Bend, 823 E. Third St., possess the duality of barista and bartender, mixing Tulsa-based Topeca coffee with a variety of spirits, from vermouth to mescal.
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".
