Fall’s cooler weather and a packed calendar of events, like Art Basel, mean the crowds will soon descend on Miami —and the city’s 4,000-plus restaurants. And while travelers can now go directly to Cuba to satisfy their curiosity about the island’s cuisine, Miamians know they lay claim to some of the best Cuban food in the world. We’re talking crunchy croquetas, rainbow-bright tropical juices, and classic sandwiches updated with local ingredients.
Like millions of Floridians, my wife and I secured our home and got out of town before Hurricane Irma arrived. Watching the storm wreak havoc from afar — we decided to go ahead with a long-planned birthday trip to Copenhagen — brought a mix of anxiety, fear and sadness. Our hearts continue to ache for those who lost loved ones, homes and businesses in the hurricane. But I’m also filled with pride at the displays of resolve and resiliency that occurred throughout Florida in Irma’s wake.
Some of the original Mango Gang – the Miami chefs who helped put South Florida restaurants on the map in the 1980s and ’90s – are back in action with exciting new food projects. INDULGE asked Douglas Rodriguez, Norman Van Aken, Cindy Hutson, Allen Susser and Mark Militello what advice they have for the next generation of Miami chefs:Douglas Rodriguez: “This life is tough, not glamorous. There are many sacrifices before there are any rewards.
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".
