When done correctly, fine dining is an art form. The subtle ballet of service, the exploration of new flavors, the beautiful designs and patterns on each plate; it has the potential to create a genuinely transcendent experience. And while some may say that no food should cost as much as fine dining food does (and yes, it can be a little insane), I can’t deny that I have had a few actually life-changing meals. That’s why the bad ones, especially the very expensive bad ones, sting so very, very much.
The OG trendy frozen drink at Parsons. Photo by Anthony Todd. The frozen drink trend in Chicago is bigger than ever, with fancy cocktail spots and dive bars alike turning on the drink machines and turning out boozy slush. Everyone knows about the Parson's Negroni Slush, but what about the rest of these drinks? A good frozen cocktail is literally one of the greatest things in the world on a late-summer afternoon, but a bad one is like brain freeze combined with a hangover.
Taco Bell's drunk cousin, Taco Bell Cantina, keeps popping up with new locations around Chicago. First there was the original, in Wicker Park. Then, we announced a second location was coming to the Loop. And now, there's a third location coming to Streeterville. DNAinfo reports that the new Taco Bell Cantina (which will open at about the same time as the loop location) is coming to 205 E. Ohio St. The menu, presumably, will be about the same as the one that's already open.
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".
