The recent re-opening of Hung Sum has been greeted with mixed emotion, judging from what I’ve read online. Some writers are delighted by the food, the service; others are mad as hell for having to wait too long to receive either. I’m more in the first camp, though I’ll admit to heeding the warnings/whinging about queues and delays, and planning my Hung Sum visits carefully. No weekends, no Labour Day Monday, no peak hours.
For the many who have already bitten, this won’t be news but I’ll say it anyway: Bite This is about as perfect a place for lunch as the western end of the city can muster on a stunning September afternoon. The last time I ate at this ‘cook shack’ on Richmond Road (tucked in behind ‘Urban Turf’, across from the Superstore, just west of Kirkwood) the place was more outhouse in size, attached to a food truck.
It was one of those unusual summer-of-‘17 evenings when the skies were clear, the winds soft and bugs were in hiding, and we felt lucky to be where we were: in Wakefield, on the large front deck of Nikosi, a ‘Bistro-Pub’ on Riverside, open since January. Our table allowed a clear view of the Gatineau River, and that, combined with good pub food starters, and a well-made gin and soda with spruce syrup made us mighty happy.
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".
