I don't know about you but I like to get my holiday shopping done early. And I certainly don't like overthinking it. (Because life is short and there's no reason to. Plus this time of year is crazy enough as it is.) So wine has always been a go-to of mine. Get a solid bottle and you're good to go. But to make things even breezier, I reached out to Vinous founder and CEO, Antonio Galloni. The renowned wine critic has a recommendation for everyone on your list.
I’ve been going through a cognac phase in the past year. And I have to say, eaux-de-vie is really working for ma vie. Luckily for me, there’s no better time than now to get into the wonderful spirit that is cognac. Case in point: Hennessy just launched its Master Blender’s Selection No. 2 in early October.
There will be one less star in New York’s culinary sky—at least according to the 2018 Michelin Guide for the city. Daniel Humm’s Eleven Madison Park, Eric Ripert’s Le Bernardin, Thomas Keller’s Per Se, Masa Takayama’s Masa, and César Ramirez’s Chef’s Table at Brooklyn Fare (which is now located in Manhattan) have all maintained their three-star status. Again. The only change to the category is one downgrade: Jean-Georges has only two stars this year, after more than ten years of claiming three.
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".
