In the early afternoon on May 12, Buffalo's most popular spring-breaker will return home. Like last year, when Casey Riordan Millard's "Shark Girl" sculpture took a brief break from her perch at the edge of the Buffalo River to get a few cosmetic touch-ups, Buffalo's most adored public artwork in memory has been undergoing another bout of restoration work. "I am happy to announce the return of our beloved Shark Girl," said Albright-Knox public art curator Aaron Ott.
There isn’t a more perfect show to kick off a theater season than “The Producers.” It’s got showgirls and chorus boys, kick lines and cartwheels—it’s got sexy grandmas and prancing Nazis. What more do you need? After the riotous opening night performance at the Kavinoky Theatre, you might have needed a sedative. Three hours of exhausting laughter never felt so good. Where this company and crew gets the stamina to barrel through this nonstop production is anyone’s guess. I’ll have what they’re having.
Look around The New Main Street in downtown Buffalo these days and you’ll find plenty of new food to eat. A spacious food hall, a Parisian café, an old-fashioned ice cream parlor, and until recently, a French fry restaurant. Turns out it’s cars that bring milkshakes to the yard. But unlike the return of vehicular traffic to a few of Main’s busier blocks, some things are better left untouched. Like Sue’s N.Y. Deli, a fixture in Theatre Place for more than two decades.
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".
