Prints of artist Jeff Morgan's "300 for 300" portrait of Arthur J. "Mr. Okra" Robinson will be sold through March 31, with all proceeds going to the Robinson family, said Collin Ferguson, a co-founder of Where Y'Art, an arts platform designed to sell and promote New Orleans artists' work.
Louisiana crawfish have seemed to poke their heads out of mud a bit earlier than usual in recent years, but everyone knows we have yet to reach the peak of boiling season. One harbinger of that season is the many, many crawfish festivals that dot the calendar between from mid-March until the end of May.
A second-line in honor of Arthur J. "Mr. Okra" Robinson will be Sunday (Feb. 25), following visitation at the Marigny Opera House. Robinson, a beloved New Orleans character known for his colorful pick-up truck and his signature cries from it that announced the fruits and vegetables he had to sell, died Feb. 15. Visitation will run from 1 to 2:40 p.m. at Marigny Opera House, 725 Ferdinand St. The official second-line for Robinson will be start at 3 p.m., said family friend Craig Nero.
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".
