It's the fifth (appropriately enough) Milwaukee Cocktail Week, and it continues through Sunday with spirits-centered events such as a class on hot-right-now rye whiskey and dinners paired with cocktails, but also a couple of gentle mornings with yoga and nonalcoholic coffee drinks. This is the first year that the event is organized by the Milwaukee chapter of the United States Bartenders Guild; the inaugural cocktail week in 2013 was launched by Alcoholmanac Magazine publisher Brian West.
An upscale Mediterranean restaurant called Mistral will open in the Avalon Theater building in Bay View late this year, and the Avalon's own menu is getting an upgrade, shifting from premade menu items to appetizers, sandwiches and pizzas made from scratch. Joe Schreiter, the chef devising the menus for both Mistral and the Avalon, 2473 S. Kinnickinnic Ave., said Mistral will take over the space that has been the bar at the Avalon. The entrance to the restaurant will be from the street.
El Tenampa Mexican Grill & Cantina is ready to give new life to the building that was the Black Kettle restaurant for five decades on the northwest side. It's due to open Oct. 1 at 8660 N. 107th St., said owner Victor Ramirez. The restaurant will have drink specials that day and more specials at the grand opening on Oct. 7, such as discounted appetizers, Ramirez said.
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".
