It’s National Pie Day, and a couple of Wichita restaurants want to give you a slice for free. Others are offering price breaks. Here’s where you can go to celebrate all things crust, fruit and cream. Livingston’s Diner, 9747 E. 21st St.: The east-side diner is offering a free slice of pie to people who purchase dinner and a beverage during its happy hour, which is 3 to 8 p.m. Of course, Livingston’s is in the free pie business. It offers this deal every Tuesday through Saturday.
It’s sometimes fun for Wichitans to hop in the car and drive a town or two over to try a new restaurant. But it’s always fun for small-towners, whose dining options tend to be limited, to get a new restaurant in their own city limits. Lately, people are buzzing about a couple of new restaurants in near-Wichita towns. One offers Cajun food, which is hard to find anywhere in Kansas. The other offers Greek and Mediterranean fare, which while common in Wichita is harder to find in smaller towns.
Kansas City just finished its annual Restaurant Week event, and Lawrence is in the middle of its. But Wichita Restaurant Week, which last happened exactly a year ago, appears to be missing, and several readers have written me to ask about it. The event will be back for a fifth installment, said Jessica Sawatski, public relations manager for organizer Visit Wichita. But it likely won’t be anytime soon. “It’s not something that we’re not interested in anymore.
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".
