A popular Houston barbecue joint is making some big changes this summer. Third Ward favorite Ray’s Real Pit BBQ Shack announced on Instagram that it’s signed a lease to move to a new, larger location. Pitmaster Herb Taylor tells CultureMap that the new location is about a mile closer to 288 on Old Spanish Trail. At 3,500 square feet, it represents a dramatic expansion compared to the current location that owner co-owner Ray Busch started six years ago in a small space adjacent to a gas station.
Agricole Hospitality — the Heights-based restaurant group that snagged the top three honors at this year’s CultureMap Tastemaker Awards — has finally announced its plans for EaDo. Six months after rumors first surfaced of the company’s involvement in the East Village project, partners Morgan Weber and Ryan Pera announced an ambitious plan to open three separate concepts in more than 10,000 square feet of reconverted warehouse space at the corner of St. Emmanuel and Dallas streets.
Ronnie Killen introduced his new brisket to the media last week, but the chef had more than the benefits of upgrading the meat at Killen’s Barbecue from USDA Prime to a wagyu-Angus product from Snake River Farms on his mind. Over the course of a 30-minute discussion with several local food writers, the chef that CultureMap frequently refers to as “Houston’s king of meat” commented on Texas Monthly’s list of the state’s 50 best barbecue joints.
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".
