Every Friday, Drink of the Week celebrates my favorite beverage from the previous seven days. To end the year, discover my 10 favorite Drinks of the Week in 2017. I live in Los Angeles and was lucky enough to travel to places like Paso Robles, Portland, Sacramento, San Diego, San Francisco, and Vancouver Island (Tofino and Victoria). Along the way, I took hundreds of hopeful sips. Look back at my 10 favorite drinks from 2017.
dineL.A. celebrates their 10th anniversary from January 12 – 26, 2018, featuring over 375 options for lunch and dinner. American Express is sponsoring an Exclusive Series of restaurants starring deluxe menus that start at $95. You’ve only got 30 meals to work with. Discover my recommendations for 10 lunches and all 15 dinners, not including Hall of Fame choices like Craft, Fogo de Chao and Lawry’s The Prime Rib, which still warrant consideration. Make your calendar count.
Chaya is a restaurant group that started nearly 400 years ago in Hayama, Japan. Their Venice branch is a relative baby, dating to 1990 and renovated in 2016. For the Exclusive Series, Executive Chef Joji Inoue prepares a nine-course, $95, omakase-style menu that’s clearly Japanese, but incorporates some fun global flavors. Begin with an oyster dressed with yuzu and bursting smoked trout roe. Tai snapper gets plated with turnip, earthy dashi, and kombu.
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".
