The best way to explore the street art of Long Beach is on two wheels. Rent a bike (there are 50 peppered throughout the city) at one of the Downtown bike-share kiosks and start off at The Varden Hotel, where youâ€™ll find a Tristan Eaton mural on the side wall near the parking lot, called â€œJames Jeanâ€? (if the artwork looks familiar, itâ€™s because her work is also all over the Arts District in Downtown LA).
Unless you’re in the San Gabriel Valley, good dumplings are hard to come by. Whether you like ‘em steamed or pan grilled, Bao Dim Sum has a nice selection of both and all your other favorite Chinese dishes. Chow mein anyone? Zinque on Melrose may just take the award for prettiest patio of them all. The Bohemian chic, French-inspired cafe by day, wine bar by night is a favorite among locals who want to feel like they’ve been whisked away to a Parisian sidewalk cafe.
9 Things to Do in Downtown LADowntown Los Angeles still has a long way to go from being the city center that Manhattan is to New York, but it is home to some of the city’s best arts, cultural and culinary destinations. Here are a list of (mostly) family-friendly things to do the next time you find yourself in the City of Angels:The cost of parking at the museum will cost you more than admission to the museum itself. Shocking.
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".
