Social House Vodka has officially hit ABC stores in Wake, Mecklenburg and Lenoir counties. The spirit company, which was founded by friends and entrepreneurs Cary Joshi, Mark Mullins and G Patel – founder of Raleigh restaurant company Eschelon Experiences – recently hosted its launch party Aug. 5 at Vaughn Towers, overlooking Carter-Finley Stadium. Guests were welcomed by a tailgate-like atmosphere, complete with cocktails on tap and food from Backyard Bistro.
Dream Hotel Group opened its doors to the first guests of Unscripted Hotel in downtown Durham last week, following a $19.5M overhaul of the old Jack Tar Motor Lodge. The new boutique hotel, at 202 N. Corcoran St., has 74 guest rooms and five locally-inspired food and beverage venues. Inside the hotel, guests can enjoy The Patio, a retro-inspired poolside lounge overlooking the Durham skyline. Or enjoy a cocktail and music while hanging out at The Studio.
The Pour Taproom has opened to the public at 202 N. Corcoran St., located on the ground floor of the Unscripted Durham hotel. This new taproom features 64 beers on draft, as well as ciders and wines. The 2,250-square-foot taproom is a pay-by-the-ounce taproom, similar to Clouds Brewing’s Raleigh and Durham locations. The taproom was founded by four friends who spent the past decade working as aid workers among refugees in places such as Darfur, Ethiopia and Uganda.
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".
