If you'd asked me in 1990, even in 2000, if there would ever be fast-food restaurants where patrons could choose quinoa and kale, tofu and arugula and basil-cucumber lemonade, I would have been highly skeptical. But here we are in 2017 and I just went to a restaurant with all those things on Houston Road in Florence, near the Wendy's and O'Charley's and Cracker Barrel. It's Core Life Eatery, a chain based in Syracuse, and they serve all those things. Plus a lot of kale.
Pasta first. A long tubular variety called Misto No. 2 slithering into the pan, then a thick layer of kefalotyri cheese, with an aroma that gives the kitchen of Holy Trinity/Saint Nicholas Greek Orthodox Church a promising tangy sharpness. Then a layer of meat, cooked and spiced the day before, smoothed into layers by Maria Trester and Eranthia Sansone and other members of the Philoptochos Society, even from edge to edge. Another laying-on of pasta, another of cheese.
There are a lot of cookie bakeries that make the kind of cookies people often make at home: chocolate chip, oatmeal raisin, sugar cookies. Of that kind of cookie from that kind of cookie bakery, Gaslight Cookies are the pinnacle. They make the best oatmeal-raisin cookies I've ever had, the chocolate chip cookies are in the top four or five. Also there are delicious toasted coconut and chocolate chip-dried cherry. There's an intriguing Kona coffee cookie and a macadamia-white chocolate.
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".
