Halloween draws near, and soon adults across America will be schlepping out to big box stores and pharmacies to load up on candy. But Clevelanders need not settle for the same bags of bite-sized Snickers every year. The Greater Cleveland area plays host to a number of locally owned sweets shops that will elevate your trick-or-treat game (or get something for yourself; we won't judge). The sweets shop model may seem antiquated, but the businesses here are run on more than just novelty and nostalgia.
One thing I notice sitting at the counter of Old Fashion Hot Dogs is that people like to reminisce about it — even while they're sitting right there at the counter. "On a Friday night, you couldn't get in this place," says a customer six stools down. His name is Paul, and he's been coming here since 1956. Another customer, a young construction worker on his lunch break, wasn't alive back then, but his grandmother used to take him here when he was a kid. I ask him if the place has changed since then.
It’s been a year for Scott Mescudi. “A year ago today, I was in rehab,” he told the crowd at CSU’s Wolstein Center on Saturday night. Depression and suicidal thoughts—the demons he’s openly struggled with his entire career—drove him there.But you can’t keep the Kid down. Mescudi—better known as Kid Cudi—returned to his hometown for a show with Hollywood blockbuster levels of special effects wizardry.
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".
