Russel Smith, head chef at the Source, recently told his meat supplier that he wanted to get his hands on “Impossible meat.” His rep offered him the likes of Wagyu and Kobe — both hard to find. “I was like, ‘No, no,’ " Smith says. “‘The vegetarian stuff.’ ”The meat alternative — called Impossible Burger — looks almost identical to ground beef. It’s bright red with bits of white “fat” marbled throughout. With a dense and springy consistency, it browns and even “bleeds” when you squish it.
When Shop Made in D.C. opens Thursday, it'll become a one-stop shop for food, jewelry, clothing and home goods that have been locally made. Just how stringent is the curation? The store wanted to serve Supreme Core cider — which is temporarily being made in Maryland until it opens its Ivy City facility this fall — but decided to wait until production crosses into the District.
On Tuesday, Michelin will release its second-ever D.C. dining guide, and for some, tensions are high. “Monday night’s going to be a bit of a lost sleep, that’s for sure,” said Jeff Faile, beverage director of Pineapple and Pearls. The fine-dining restaurant on Barracks Row was awarded two stars last year, along with Minibar and Inn at Little Washington.
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".
