Ice isn't just a summertime ingredient, and aside from a few cold weather staples like hot toddies and Irish coffee, cocktails are best served cold. "Ice is the foundation on which you build your drinks. When sipping on premium cocktails and spirits, the ice – if not pure – can alter the flavor dramatically. Ever had a glass of iced tea using old freezer ice? It tends to taste like whatever was in the freezer," says Javier Flores, owner of Fat Ice Company.
Whether savory or sweet, there’s something inherently communal about making and sharing pies. One homegrown organization has been organizing pie socials for more than twenty years in an attempt to facilitate neighborly conversations centered around food. We caught up with the founder of Peace through P.I.E to get the backstory, and find out how to participate this weekend in advance of Monday’s Martin Luther King Jr. holiday. Austin Chronicle: In a nutshell, what is Peace through Pie?
1) Tom Yam Chicken Noodle Soup, Xian Sushi & Noodle This has become my go-to lemongrass-chile soup in town. Several spots have delicious firepots of similarly flavor-profiled tom yum, but the hand-pulled noodles push this one to the top. Coconut milk cools the fiery broth (though there's still enough heat to blast through any sinus issues), and the adorable enoki mushrooms and other veggies add a lovely texture. Pro tip: It's just as delicious when taken to go.
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".
