Food was more than a means of survival for Meriwether Lewis and William Clark’s Corps of Discovery. From the beginning, it was central to the mission of finding the most efficient passage to the Pacific and establishing friendly commerce with the territory’s inhabitants. Even President Thomas Jefferson made a point of directing the expedition captains to note the “food, clothing & domestic accommodations” of the tribes encountered.
Originally established in 1861 as the Shady Villa Hotel in Salado, Texas, the Stagecoach Inn and its Shady Villa Bar were re-opened to the public in 2017. In doing so, clientele pass from the 21st century to the 19th century and the historic Chisholm Trail, sharing space with Sam Houston, George Custer, and Charles Goodnight. Whip up a sweet and tangy taste of history on the trail with this dessert recipe, courtesy of executive pastry chef Michelle Aricilla Hall.
Coaxing a stranger to dance with shots at his feet. Well-dressed madams and their ladies. Gamblers and con men. Future presidents and lawmen. The legends of Old West saloons are romantic and rough and tumble. Some of those watering holes are living legends. Here are five of our favorites. What does a Wild West town with nearly 20 saloons need? Another saloon! At least that is what Mike Russell decided when he arrived in Deadwood, South Dakota, in March 1877.
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".
