Syracuse has had many claims to fame over the years. Maybe its strangest was in the early 1920s, when the Salt City was believed to have been home to the world's narrowest restaurant. The Koffee Kafe was open from 1921 to 1923 on Warren Street, tucked between the Savoy Theater and Syracuse Herald building, and it measured four feet wide by 44 feet long. Over its two-year existence the restaurant would become a curiosity around the country, with cameramen from news outlets filming it.
A Post-Standard reporter was confronted by a music fan after leaving The Who concert at the Carrier Dome on Dec. 10, 1982. "Big crowd," said the teenager. "Just write 'big crowd.' Put it in headlines. Big, huge crowd." The veteran British rock band were on the final leg of what they called their farewell tour and the performance at the Dome was called their "last big gig."
Syracuse University basketball fans of a certain age will remember the Carrier Classic, the annual early-season tournament hosted by Syracuse. Syracuse usually won the four-team event easily. For example, 25 years ago in 1992, the Orange crushed Southern Mississippi 103-75, then beat VCU, 94-81. The first Carrier Classic was 40 years ago. Despite the name, it was played at Manley Field House and featured one of the game's most exciting players, Earvin "Magic" Johnson.
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".
