For all the success that has come to Magnolia Avenue in the Near Southside over the last decade, it’s a bit surprising to step back and realize that there’s been little in the way of new construction along the street. Virtually everything that has opened along Magnolia has been housed in existing buildings, most of which are early 20th-century commercial structures that have been renovated but kept their classic appearance.
Some places feel like they’ve always been there. Since opening in 2011, Chimera Brewing Company has taken on that role as the Near Southside’s veteran, homy brewpub — a place where you can bike or stroll over to grab a pint of ale and catch a sports game. The full-service restaurant has also garnered a reputation (and numerous awards) for its handcrafted pizzas. I stopped by recently to chat with Chimera Brewing’s new head brewer, Matthew Maroney.
Imagine pulling up to an ordinary-looking brick building, handing your keys to a valet, and then being whisked into a cheerful dining room by a sharply dressed waiter. You spend the next hour or so sampling everything from sangria-compressed watermelon to tortillas fried in bacon fat, all the while bonding with other guests seated around an intimate shared table. As you wait for your check, you’re struck by a sudden melancholy: You’ll never get to enjoy these dishes again.
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".
