The names of the sweets at Aladdin Bakery may be unfamiliar to some, but everybody knows what delicious tastes like. The new Mediterranean bakery has opened in Fresno, serving up baklava, konafa, harissah and other gooey treats laden with nuts and cheese. In the kitchen is a 27-year-old Syrian refugee who got his first job as an assistant baker at 16. Both the baker and the bakery are getting their footing. Aladdin Bakery opened about two months ago, in an obscure spot in north Fresno.
Barely a year after it opened, the Dickey’s Barbecue Pit at the new shopping center in northeast Fresno has closed. The doors are locked and the chairs and tables are gone. It was one of several new restaurants, along with Jersey Mike’s Subs and the Habit Burger Grill, that opened in a new building facing Friant Road near Fresno Street. The Park Crossing shopping center is home to Sportsman’s Warehouse and is still under construction, with Trader Joe’s and other retailers coming soon.
It’s time to say goodbye to the Old Hotel Bistro in Old Town Clovis. The restaurant inside the historic hotel at 356 Pollasky Ave. will close Thursday, July 27. About 2 1/2 years ago, chef Jim Pacini took over the restaurant and added a Creole twist to the menu. As The Bee reported in 2015, the Old Hotel Bistro was one of the rare places in town where diners could get gumbo or a New Orleans po’ boy sandwich. Pacini said the restaurant’s lease had expired.
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".
