Wiltons celebrates its 275th anniversary this year. Known as one of the best seafood restaurants in the capital, the restaurant has been on Jermyn Street since 1984. Wiltons' seafood roots were established by George William Wilton who opened his shellfish-mongers close to Haymarket in 1742. From there the seafood establishment has had various locations, all around the St James's area of London, until opening on Jermyn Street.
Our overnight stay at La Réserve in Saint-Jean-de-Luz in the Basque region of France, en route to the San Sebastian jazz festival, was a real treat. It seemed apt that we were visiting the birthplace of Maurice Ravel, composer of "Bolero" before leaving for a music festival the following day. Ravel was born in Ciboure, just across the Nivelle river from Saint-Jean-de-Luz. The quaint seaside village is a 20 minute cab ride from the more hectic holiday resort Biarritz.
A highlight of our travels each year is a music festival, usually jazz, that doesn't involve camping, mud and massive crowds of Glastonbury-like proportions. Memorable past festivals include the Radio France Festival at Montpellier (presenting jazz, classical, electronic and world music), the FMM (Festivas Musica do Mundo) in Sines and Porto Covo, Portugal and the Marseille Jazz Festival.
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".
