CHICAGO — Walk into a hot dog stand and you'll walk out greasy and satisfied. That's the goal, anyway, of any stand worth its celery salt and presumably what's motivating you to begin with. It could be a stand in any corner of the city. (There are an estimated 1,800 to choose from, according to Bob Schwartz, senior vice president at Vienna Beef and author of “Never Put Ketchup On A Hot Dog.”) You could be wearing a tank top or a tux. Doesn’t matter.
You never forget your first rijsttafel. David de Quay was about 10 years old, visiting family in Holland, when he ate the marathon Indonesian meal, which can run to 30 dishes or more. (The banquet—whose name means “rice table”—is an invention of 19th-century Dutch colonists.) After celebrating the first anniversary of his namesake restaurant last year with a rijsttafel, the chef made a toned-down version of the spread a monthly offering at de Quay.
Gold Star Bar's owner Susan Stursberg (l.) died in 2012; her mom runs the bar. [Gold Star Bar/Facebook]CHICAGO — If the walls of Chicago's oldest bars could talk, you would need to pull up a stool and stay longer than a while. Man, the stories you'd hear — of bootlegged booze and secret doors, mobsters holding court and iconic movie scenes filmed, "meet cutes" ending in marriage. You might even hear a ghost story or two.
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".
