Fall opening season is in full swing, which means diners have lots of high quality new restaurants to try. Two of Houston’s most recent James Beard Award winners, Justin Yu (Theodore Rex) and Chris Shepherd (One Fifth Romance Languages), have each opened new concepts, to say nothing of contributions from high profile chefs like Bryan Caswell (Oxbow 7) and new concepts from both Pappas Restaurants (Delta Blues Smokehouse) and Goode Company (Kitchen & Cantina).
Houston's craft beer scene just keeps getting better. In the same week that Buffalo Bayou Brewing Company revealed its plans to open a massive new brewery in Sawyer Yards, Saint Arnold Brewing Company has finally shared details of its long-awaited beer garden. Slated to open next summer, the new addition will be located next to Saint Arnold's brewery on Lyons Street.
Let's be honest. Keeping up with the pace of Houston's restaurant openings has been even harder than usual this year. Just as people started returning to dining rooms post-Harvey, the Astros dramatic run to a World Series victory sent them flocking to Minute Maid Park, sports bars, or staying home to follow every twist and turn — i.e., not dining in restaurants. I get it. I've been root, root, rooting for the Astros since my third grade teacher (hi, Mrs. Marsters!)
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".
