The fried pies have been saved. Back in August, I told you about the sad fate of Arbuckle Mountain Fried Pies, the little roadside shop that had been set up for several years in a solitary former Stuckey’s building just off exit 211 in Tonkawa, Okla. If you drove between Wichita and Oklahoma City on I-35, you wouldn’t be able to miss the frequent, tantalizing billboards, printed in giant red type, that advertised the sweetness available just off the exit.
I’d never really stopped to consider whether I would like Native American food. Why would I? Never once in my life have I been offered any or been in a situation where I could have tried some. Until this week, and wow, I really like Native American food. Native American restaurants are hardly commonplace, but there is one in Denver – Tocabe – that has been earning rave reviews of late. Now, I’m convinced Wichita needs one, too.
Wichita has a busy restaurant scene, and unless you follow closely along at Dining with Denise and Kansas.com , you might miss some of the delicious developments. Here's an end-of-the-week rundown of everything we discovered in the last seven days. This recap is for the week of Nov. 11-17.
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".
