How to Trick Your Partner Into a "Romantic" Beer Getaway
Believe it or not, the United States is now home to nearly 6,000 breweries. And with so many new players in the game comes an onslaught of experimental new products and beer styles (so fried chicken beer is a thing now, huh?). As any diligent beer geek will tell you, it's become nearly impossible to keep up with all of the latest trends and releases—the industry is simply growing too quickly.
Minnesota is the Land of 10,000 Lakes. It’s also home to the late Prince, Vikings football, and food on a stick. And, of course, it's a great place for beer lovers, with a slew of fantastic options: everything from old staples like Grain Belt (“the friendly beer”!) to thousands of new craft brews that’ve taken the state by storm.
Becoming a parent will shift your perspective and priorities in a wonderful way. But the initial adjustment to the presence of your new family member — to the start of your new life — is a special form of hell. I may have only become a father three months ago, but I know that having a kid makes your life 50 percent better…and 40 percent worse. The level of household chaos in the four weeks after bringing a baby home is off-the-charts insane.
With a bit of #BourgogneBlanc, I came to understand how this decadent oxtail, foie gras, mushroom terrine is meant to be enjoyed: you need a lean, mean, high-acid wine to cut through that rich fat and protein. (Vegetarians, I apologize!) #BourgogneWinehttps://t.co/vo8z3Xv0nC
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".
