To prepare for the New Year, I did what all conscientious food writers do. I Googled food trends and although a bit blown away by the more than sixteen pages, I scrolled through the litany of food trend predictions. This meant wading through a pea soup fog of what was hot and what was room temp, evaluating which cuisine would waft aromatic in 2018. This is a requirement of being a food writer.
Winter hasn't been terrifically cold yet in 2018 but even so, it's always a good idea to take a break and get out of town if you can for a bit of fun in the sun. But January is an ironic month. Following on the heels of the holiday season's festivities, many people make a weary entrance into the new year. With vacation time spent with family or friends in celebration of December, the first of the year might seem daunting, knowing that your next vacation is months away.
It's rare to find the words "gourmet" and "grub" in close proximity, even more so to purposely describe a cuisine. But take a look at menu in Greeley and the partnership makes sense. When daily sustenance drives an art form, lines blur and definitions fade to irrelevance. The result is fresh, innovative, slow cooked cuisine that tastes great. Teamwork arising from a longtime relationship forms the bedrock of this new restaurant that is a natural fit for the history of its personnel.
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".
