Downtown Martinez has in recent years seen an infusion of dining options that have brought life to a once-sleepy town. Now, it seems, the choices are spreading, with the opening of Arash Pakzad’s latest venture, Cuff & Collar Home Kitchen. Pakzad already has two of the town’s popular options in the Barrelista coffee house and the Barrel Aged cocktail lounge; now, with Cuff & Collar, there’s a new food-centered stop on your to-do list.
Seawolf, Oakland’s newest gastropub, comes into existence with a legacy to live up to: The towering Victorian structure the pub occupies was, for years, home to the Warehouse bar, the city’s premier watering hole for police officers, firefighters and other public safety workers. The Warehouse wasn’t exactly known as being one of the East Bay’s top culinary destinations, content to serve standard pub grub.
CONCORD — Mexican food is everywhere. Good Mexican food, bad Mexican food, and Mexican food that’s just … fine. It takes something special to stand out, and thankfully, Ivan Tellez has that special something: A family legacy of cooking, and an appreciation for Mexican specialties that you won’t find on every other menu. Tellez brought his family’s legacy — the food of Mexico’s Chiapas state — to his new restaurant in Concord, Canasta Kitchen.
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".
