It was a crisp and brisk but extremely tasty evening Friday night at the Friends Center for the Philly Vegan Awards! As part of Philly Vegan Day 2017 we celebrated vegan values and also took the opportunity to stuff our faces without having to ask "is this vegan?" Festivities kicked off in the Cherry Street Room, where a dozen vendors provided samples of some of the best vegan food in town.
UPDATE 11/8: PRESENTERS AND VEGAN FOOD SAMPLING: OK, now winners have been determined and certificates are being printed. Hope you've already secured your tickets for the Philly Vegan Awards this Friday, Nov. 10. If not, you can still get the advance price through tomorrow at the American Vegan Society site.
If you have opinions on the tastiest vegan offerings in Philly, here's the place to let the world know, and help your favorites on the path to a Philly Vegan Award! Voting is now open: The first, nominating phase is Oct 18-30. (More complete contest info here.) You can nominate in any and all of the 12 categories (you need not fill out all of them, despite the voting-page language), and you can vote for your favorites once per day.
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".
