Eight or nine twenty-somethings showed up for the first planning meeting at The Palm. They told friends, who told friends, eventually rounding up 75 players and coaches for a game held at Griggs Park in Uptown before it was updated. There were several key takeaways from that first game nine years ago. For starters -- and enders -- you don’t ply players and coaches with brunch and mimosas and then take to the field at 2 p.m. on the first day of August. “But hey, what do I know?” Finegold laughs.
Town Hearth, Nick Badovinus’s latest success, is the restaurant he had in mind, but couldn’t afford, when he launched Neighborhood Services on Lovers Lane in 2008. His signature is on every element of this steak place that's as much about having good time with friends and family as it is menu. So what’s up with:“When I was a little boy, going out to a fancy restaurant in Seattle and San Francisco meant a cool aquarium or lobster tank.
It’s Thursday evening as Nick Badovinus table hops at his packed Town Hearth restaurant in Dallas’ Design District. His slightly wrinkled chef’s jacket christened with a small food stain belies his star status as owner/chef of one of the hottest restaurants in town. Badovinus huddles with each table as if he’s greeting close friends. Some are. Some are about to be. He’s clearly in his element. “Food brings people together,” the 46-year-old says later in an interview.
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".
