The Campbell Apartment, the much-beloved (and somewhat hidden) bar in Grand Central Station that closed in July of 2016, reopened last month with a new name: The Campbell. The space, which is divided into three parts with three different experiences, retained its old world grandeur—and then some. First up: the Campbell Bar—a former office that belonged to railroad executive John Williams Campbell. Then there’s the old taxi stand, which will be named Campbell Terrace.
Scotch, bourbon, rum, Cognac, rye, Irish whiskey, Japanese whisky. The list goes on. If it’s an amber-hued distilled spirit, I’m interested. And while it may be more refined to say that I “collect,” the truth is, one does not “collect” in a miniscule New York City one-bedroom apartment. One hoards. But there’s one bottle, in particular, that I’ve invested considerable time, effort, and expense into: Don Papa rum. You see, I turn to rum in the summer months and Don Papa is one of my favorites.
OpenTable—the popular restaurant reservations system—just released its annual "Best Brunch Restaurants in America" list. Personally, I look forward to reading the many 100-strong lists that OpenTable publishes throughout the year. Why? They’re certainly nowhere near the league of Michelin or the James Beard Award or the World’s 50 Best Restaurants. There are no numbered rankings, no special awards, no trophies, no plaques, no judges or panels or secret tasters.
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 Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
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, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
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".
