SPRING PARK, Minn. (WCCO) — Lake Minnetonka is many things to many people: It’s a beautiful escape, a boaters’ paradise, and a place to party. The lake’s most successful restaurant is also many things to many people. Lord Fletcher’s Old Lake Lodge provides a party outside on the wharf, elegant finer dining upstairs, and something in between in the middle.
It's officially summer, and for me, that means it's time to hit the road—even if it's just for short trips. There's never going to be better road trip weather than this, so get out there and soak in the sun. Here are three bites certain to maximize your summer fun. I seriously thought Farmington was much farther than the quick half-hour jaunt that it is from my St. Paul door. This new whiskey-driven pub is a fantastic short road trip destination with ridiculously delicious drinks.
MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — When you’ve been making iconic candy for more than 100 years, it can be hard to innovate. There are only so many things you can do to a Nut Roll, or a Mint Patty. So Pearson’s decided to launch a new product line. And it’s delicious. This morning, DeRusha Eats in St. Paul, at 7th Street Confections. Pearson’s is known for Nut Rolls, and just bought Bit-O-Honey. It’s very successful, but also somewhat limiting. So, 7th Street Confections launched with a line of Dark Chocolate Thins.
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".
