MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — It’s an incredible success story, still being written, that started with 100 pounds of brats at the Minneapolis Farmers Market. “We sold out right away,” Nick Beste, CEO of Man Cave Craft Eats, said. “I brought 150 pounds the next week, and sold that out right away. It just progressed from there.”Beste was a sophomore at the University of Minnesota. His post-college plans were already in motion.
Our last summer days are edging ever nearer and it’s nearly impossible to ignore that looming Labor Day. Now is the time to suck the marrow of life or, in the case of the bone luge at Libertine, eat the marrow and drink the whiskey in the waning summer light. Ever since opening the door, this Uptown hot spot with the alluring rooftop has been charming eaters.
Confession: When Target announced it was launching a house brand of $5 wine bottles, I wasn't excited about it. I'm not a cheap wine drinker. I'm happy when people are happy about wine, and, sure, I'm happy if you love a certain bottle of 2 Buck Chuck (3 Buck Chuck here in Minnesota), but it's not my jam. I typically spend between $10–$18/bottle of wine (as my favorite wine retailers all know), and I find wines in that price range to be more consistent. That said: A lot of people love cheap wine.
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".
