By Dathan Kazsuk From tacos and steaks to dim sum and craft beer - these are a few of OpenTable's favorite things. OpenTable has released its "Top 10 Diners' Choice Winners" for Raleigh based on diner reviews and recommendations. The latest compilation should come as no surprised to the locals with an diverse mix of Asian, Mexican, French, Contemporary American restaurants - even a brewery found its way onto the list. And one of the restaurant groups made the list twice for two different locations.
And you thought video stores were a thing of the past. Well, maybe they are, but Alamo Drafthouse Cinema doesn't think so. When the Texas-based cinema opens in Raleigh in early 2018, it will introduce its audience to Video Vortex. Located in the lobby of the cinema, this concept will carry thousands of VHS cassettes as well as Blu-ray Discs and DVDs for rent.
A new brewery is coming to Raleigh. But don't expect to pull up a seat at the bar any time soon because there won't be a taproom - at least for its first year. A group of diverse beer industry enthusiasts have created 1323 R&D, which is experimenting with new recipes and ideas that will be hitting local bars in the next few weeks. The brewery is led by former Lonerider and White Street brewer Ian VanGundy and a group of five others who have worked with local distributor R.A. Jeffreys.
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".
