The wings craze, which shows no signs of abating in Connecticut, means that increasingly chicken wings are being treated as a blank canvas upon which culinary artists can splash a full spectrum of flavors. With wingmen Robert Bailin and Monica Roy, I set out to find Connecticut's best — and wildest — wings. Because we were honoring not just quality but imagination, we only considered wing joints that offered at least four flavors.
Monday could be a bleak day in Newington, because it's the one day you can't get a nice bite of breakfast at Little Cake Café in Market Square. Otherwise, as its menu tells you, "it's "breakfast — always and all ways." And just in case you didn't get that, it's "breakfast — when you like it, how you like it, all day long." Keep in mind that "all day long" means different things to different people. Little Cake is open until either one or two p.m., depending on the day of the week.
When owners Johnny Migliore and Derrick Lee took over the former Machiavelli's space in downtown Southington, they wanted to create a bigger and better version of their popular 66 Church gastropub in Naugatuck. They appear to have succeeded. 75 Center has caught the attention of a younger demographic with an upbeat atmosphere that encompasses separate dining and lounge areas and a large game room in back.
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".
