While you're in Mobile for Mardi Gras, take an extra day and head to Fairhope (just a 30-minute drive) to check out what this quaint bayside town has to offer. From streets lined with Spanish moss-draped trees to beautiful views of Mobile Bay, Fairhope is the charming and picturesque town of Southern dreams. The community atmosphere is felt just walking around downtown, where shop owners greet you with a smile and restaurateurs invite you in to have a drink.
It was a sentiment I repeated again and again. There were several reasons why I planned never to move to the suburbs--especially not to the busiest corridor in the Birmingham metro. While I appreciate its ease of convenience to several necessities--Target, Trader Joe's, Nordstrom Rack--and its abundance of affordable homes and beautiful neighborhoods, there's always one thing that holds me back, and that is the incessant traffic.
What do you get when you ask an Indian-American chef--who grew up in Louisville, Kentucky, trained in Europe, and cooks Mexican food in New York--to open a restaurant in Birmingham, Alabama? You get Fero. The modern Italian joint, a full-service, sit-down restaurant located inside the Pizitz Food Hall is the brainchild of chef Akhtar Nawab, a New York City-restaurateur who trained under famed chef Tom Colicchio, founder of Gramercy Tavern.
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".
