When deciding to add hot links to the menu at Boar’s Breath, Stephenson’s inclination was to craft his own sausages. The veteran chef had, after all, prepared and cured meats at his Middletown fine dining location before scaling down and moving to Clearlake. With a cramped kitchen, however, it seemed best to find a traditional source for the spicy links. So did he turn to the sultry east Texas towns of Pittsburg or Elgin, famed for more than a century for their hearty sausages?
After so many years, winemakers lose that enthusiasm of youth. It’s like any other profession — once the novelty wears off, tending grapes becomes a matter of experience. So to find veteran Matt Hughes behind a childlike grin, pouring gewurztraminer as if for the first time is somewhat refreshing. “I’m really pumped about this,” he said as another round of the white wine splashed into a glass. Hughes’ pride in his 2016 Brassfield gewurztraminer is understandable.
Well, not every single one of them. Their numbers, however, are sufficient enough to make cabernet the most consistently popular varietal. The attraction is so keen that some people are willing to shell out hundreds, if not thousands of dollars for just one bottle of the stuff. And why not? Swaggering fruits, an earthy prurience, lashing tannins that promise flavors will develop over time — cabernet sauvignon offers depth and terroir.
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".
