Food truck Cuban Gypsy Pantry set down permanent roots last Thursday, July 20, at 141 Calhoun St. Cuban Gypsy Pantry started as a food truck last November and has since been a fixture on Upper King. Now the menu from chef Will Vivas has a home in the former Avila space. Vivas was born in Cuba and raised in Venezuela, so he’s bringing a bit of the same flavor as the previous tenant, but with the larger focus of Cuban staples.
Charleston City Paper critic Vanessa Wolf may want to consider keeping some hot sauce in her bag after her latest review of Cigar Factory tenant Rappahannock Oyster Bar. For the first half of the article, Wolf desperately needs some spice: the ceviche “could have stood more heat,” on the fish dip, “three dots of hot sauce is just a tease,” and the grilled oysters “are also lacking in any discernible heat.” But then she finds a small dropper of Rappahannock’s in-house hot sauce and all is fine.
One more piece of the Nico puzzle is solved today with the announcement that Cal Goodell will join as general manager. Upcoming oyster and seafood restaurant Nico comes from former Fish chef Nico Romo. Romo says, “After working together for our years at Patrick Properties, I’m thrilled to have Cal back on my team. He and I work together so well that when it came time to hire a GM, there was nobody else even in consideration.
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".
