Rochester has an intriguing spooky side. You've probably heard the stories about the Lady in White, the haunted stacks of the Rundel Memorial Library, or the Fox Sisters. The partners behind The Spirit Room (139 State Street) are interested in the spiritual side of Rochester lore and have created a space downtown that celebrates it. "We wanted to pay Rochester the homage it deserves," says Luc Thiers, who is one of the partners and also serving drinks behind the bar.
Beer drinkers locally and nationally are experiencing something of a craft brewery renaissance. According to Datafiniti, Rochester now ranks 16th per capita nationally with 3.2 breweries for every 100,000 people. The trend slakes thirsts, but beer lovers often crave food with their brews. Several local breweries recognize that and have put together menus to meet both needs.
On this episode of the Food About Town podcast, Tracy Schuhmacher from the Democrat and Chronicle came over to the studio to talk about the upcoming Rochester stop of the traveling Food and Wine Experience on September 23. It was great to finally get Tracy over to chat and we had a great time recounting her time at the D&C, the Rochester food scene and Finger Lakes wines.

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".
