With all the fine dining on Fifth Avenue South, a new restaurant must be truly exceptional to claim its place among so many other outstanding venues. Luckily for diners in Southwest Florida, Ocean Prime is up to the task. Though part of a national chain—“We’re restaurant No. 14,” our waiter told us during a recent dinner—Ocean Prime feels particularly suited to our area and therefore commanded our attention.
I sat in a dark parking lot at the edge of the Everglades, and for the first time it occurred to me that maybe this was a bad idea. The full moon cast an eerie silver light over the deserted asphalt, and the swamp loomed on all sides. I grew up in Florida, and I’ve spent more time than I can count exploring this state’s natural places. I know the coastlands, the uplands, the streams and rivers. I’ve visited clear springs and salt marshes, scrub prairies and pine forests.
When a restaurant has the word “cocktails” in its official name, it’s a solid bet that you’re in for a festive night. With Point 57 Kitchen & Cocktails in Cape Coral, the drinks happen to be served alongside a fine menu of classic American-inspired food. Which is to say, you’re in for a festive night, indeed. On a recent evening, my friends and I began by selecting from a list of Point 57’s handcrafted libations.
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".
