If you were traveling, taking wings along is probably not the best idea. But if you have folks coming to your house for a Super Bowl party, wings are well worth the sloppy deliciousness. A tried and true wing recipe from Virgil’s BBQ in Times Square is one of the best wings recipes I’ve ever tried – and the restaurant spilled on what makes them so amazing – recipe included. You think you can only find great chicken wings in the South? Think again. Virgil’s BBQ serves up more than 30,000 lbs.
Cities from Baltimore to New York to London have spiffed up and rebranded their waterfront neighborhoods. Now, that list includes Washington DC, with this newly redeveloped waterfront in Southwest DC. The Wharf includes luxury apartments, boutiques, entertainment and restaurants. Take the time to wander around, enjoy the view and eat some really good food. Sadly, I didn’t have time to dawdle here.
When I arrived, I offered my Hilton Honors rewards number and because of my gold status, I was upgraded to a waterfront view suite. This was a truly great benefit, an upgrade where you could see the difference. My room had floor to ceiling glass, to take advantage of that view. The “barn door,” one of the innovative Canopy hotel features, separated my bedroom from the dining area. The door, available in every type of room, helps reduce hallway noise. I also really liked the decor.
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".
