Italian family-style chain restaurant Buca di Beppo has officially closed its doors in SoMa earlier this month. The closure marks the end of a 20-year run at the location; according to SFGate, Buca di Beppo first opened at 855 Howard St. location (between 4th and 5th streets) in 1997. A tipster first alerted Hoodline to the closure; a sign posted on the door says its last official day was August 12th, and thanks customers for their patronage.
The Folsom-Howard Steetscape Project continues to move forward with plans intended to increase SoMa's street safety. Muni is holding a public meeting tomorrow to discuss upcoming improvements on Folsom between Falmouth and 11th streets. The hearing will take place at 10am in room 416 at City Hall. The $26 million project—intended to help reduce traffic fatalities in the area and improve Central SoMa's infrastructure—has a completion date set for 2022.
Cookie-dough kiosk Doughp—pronounced "dope"—is opening its first brick-and-mortar location in The Myriad food hall at 2175 Market St. between Church and Sanchez streets. The new spot will debut in September. At Doughp, patrons can get cookie dough in scoops or in 4oz. and 8oz. to-go containers. Flavors offered include Feeling Salty? (sea salt, caramel bits and pretzels), Lavender Dreamz (white chocolate and oatmeal) and a paleo, gluten-free and vegan option called #Veganlife.
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".
