Chris Paulos started Black Friday with bragging rights as the first in line for Lakefront Brewery's Black Friday beer sale. Paulos, who lives near the brewery at 1872 N. Commerce St., skipped Thanksgiving with his family in Chicago to get a spot in line at 5 p.m. on Thursday. A friend joined him at 5:45 p.m.Read: Now, Black Friday isn't just for shoppers. It's for beer lovers.
Welcome to Weekend Guide — holiday edition. The object is to stuff you with so many things to do you'll work off that Thanksgiving meal in no time. Sure you're full but, trust me, you'll eat again and the last thing you're going to want is turkey. Dining critic Carol Deptolla has the goods on brunch spot Sabrosa in Bay View. Music writer Piet Levy suggests these live shows. Take your relatives. Show off. My tickets have been secured for Saturday's R&B Cadets show at Shank Hall.
So begins the holiday season. Look for bars and breweries to stock up on Porters and Stouts — the hearty variety that can withstand a cold evening or a, shudder, afternoon of shoveling snow. But if you want to warm your soul at the same time, there's Re-Porter, a collaboration between Tyler Maas at Milwaukee Record and Company Brewing. The beer — I've tried it — is Company’s Night Rye’d Porter infused with cinnamon, cocoa nibs, medium roast coffee, vanilla beans, and three types of chiles.
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".
