Ruth’s Chris Steak House celebrates its 50th birthday this year, and marks the “golden anniversary” with a series of Champagne pairing dinners starring bubbles from Veuve Clicquot. The first is held on Thursday, March 19 at branches of the restaurant throughout the US. Here’s the great news: we have two free seats to give away at the Washington Convention Center location (a $240-plus value). The menu is pretty luxurious: lobster bisque, filet mignon with truffle-foie gras butter, vintage Champagne.
Whoâ€™s the biggest food lover among the Nationals? We thought it was Ryan Zimmerman, a major investor in the newly-opened Salt Line, but now Bryce Harper is strutting his culinary stuff. The star right fielder just launched a “food blog” with wife Kayla, according to MLB.com, which is actually just an Instagram account that tracks their culinary travels around DC and on the road. What did we discover from the posts so far?
When chef Seng Luangrath took over Bangkok Golden in 2010, she didn’t want to change the name of the familiar Thai restaurant in Seven Corners, Virginia. She began serving dishes from her native Laos as word-of-mouth specials that summer, and eventually gained a cult-like following of foodies and expats eager for her punchy, fiery flavors. Still, she kept Thai food on the menu and the capital city’s moniker.
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".
