SUTTER CREEK >> Long narrow belts whir across the ceiling of the cavernous structure, the sound buzzing, thrumming and reverberating through the warm, dusty air. You may not see the rush of water powering this 19th-century hydroelectric foundry, but there’s no mistaking the effect as giant wheels, gears, lathes and planers glide into motion. Sutter Creek’s Knight Foundry is the last of its kind — and for Gold Rush history buffs, it’s absolute catnip.
If you’ve ever golfed down Lombard Street’s curves or across the Golden Gate Bridge with all its loop-di-loop thrills, chances are good that you know all about Subpar, Alameda’s clever miniature golf course. (We hope so, anyway. Using a 9-iron on a real bridge full of rush-hour traffic is ill-advised.) Five years ago, Michael Taft opened his first indoor mini-golf course on Alameda’s Park Street with 18 holes showcasing Bay Area landmarks.
Lahaina has always been an interesting mix of touristy kitsch, surfer chic and echoes of the past. But up until the last few years, the town’s dining scene has been dominated by Cheeseburger in Paradise, Bubba Gump and similar eateries. Those spots have a fan following, of course, but the rise of the locavore Hawaii regional cuisine movement over the last decade has brought some fantastic new dining options to Lahaina. Here’s a delicious trio to explore.
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".
