When Samosa House recently opened at Plaza El Segundo in the space that used to be The Counter, I was amused.Hard to think of two more diametrically opposed concepts, a shrine to humongous burgers gives way to vegan/vegetarian Indian food. But the community seems to have embraced the change, as lunch was a busy hum when I visited on a weekday afternoon.Vibha Bhojak's family owns and operates all five of the Samosa House restaurants. The first one, Samosa House West in Culver City, opened in 1979.
Ruben Frias grew up in Monterey, Mexico, (about 100 miles south of Laredo) in the heart of "meat country." He remembers long weekends when his uncle would braise meats for a crowd. As a child, Frias was schooled in how to pair different cuts with complementary chilies, developing a passion for food.As an adult, he chose a more practical path, eventually becoming a creative director for Disney. When Frias moved his family to the South Bay in 1995, cooking was still just a hobby.
Here in the South Bay there are plenty of places you can dine with your dog. Most are casual breakfast and lunch spots. But in the land of sun and sand, there are a handful of restaurants where you can also get a decent dinner with your dog. Here are five restaurants that get a big paws up from my pooches.RockefellerA New York style gastropub, Rockefeller in Manhattan Beach, has four patio tables for doggie diners. Management tells me they get all sorts of breeds, from Mastiffs to teacup Chihuahuas.
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".
