Since opening in 2015, Bluejacket’s bottle shop has only sold, well, bottles. But the Navy Yard brewery is finally funneling its IPAs and lagers into cans beginning March 2. To start, the brewery will release one new canned beer each week beginning at noon on Fridays. Eventually, it will release as many as three beers weekly, but in limited quantities. “It’s not going to be like you walk into Bluejacket and we have 10 different cans of 10 different beers available at all times.
Players Club, a ’70s-styled basement arcade bar coming to Logan Circle at the end of the month, has all the classic games: pinball, Skee-Ball, coin-operated pool tables, PacMan. And then there’s the claw machine… only this one grabs sex toys. “Why not?,” says co-owner Ian Hilton, who operates the Brixton, El Rey, and a bunch of other U Street-centric bars with his brother Eric Hilton.
Anyone who’s ever tried to make blocks of ice in a home freezer knows how hard it is to get a cloudless cube. But now, you can buy the fancy, crystal-clear rocks used in high-end cocktail bars from Petworth’s Reliable Tavern. Co-general managers and bartenders Ben Long and Ben Alt have set up their ice service like a brewery’s growler refill system. On your first visit, you purchase an insulated bag that can carry up to 18 cubes; bring it back for refills, and you’ll get a discount on your ice.
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".
