Jennifer Goff waited in line 97 hours—roughly four full days—for the Game of Thrones pop-up bar. The professional line sitter clocked 32 visits, each at a minimum of $30 an hour. Her longest single stretch: six hours. What started as an odd job going up to random people and asking if they’d hire her to stand in line has since developed into a company called Skip the Line.
Andrew Whitehead has amassed so many vintage glasses, shakers, and punch bowls that he had to build an extra pantry just to house them all. But the cocktail enthusiast, who documents his finds as Liquorary on Instagram, has since transformed his overstuffed shelves into a side hustle, selling coupes and tumblers. Whitehead, who works for the Department of Defense, got into cocktails after returning from six dry months in Iraq in 2011.
Who says you can’t get things done quickly in Washington? Just a couple weeks after the DC Health Department caused a public uproar by cracking down on dogs on restaurant and bar patios, the DC Council unanimously passed an emergency legislation allowing businesses to choose whether they want to have pet-friendly patios. It started when health inspectors told owners of the Midlands in Park View and Wonderland Ballroom in Columbia Heights that they weren’t allowed to have dogs on their premises.
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".
