The lamb ribs at Bows & Arrows, much like the establishment itself, are a finger food of uncommon beauty and complementary contrasts. Thickly cut with fatty breast meat still attached to small nubs of bone, the riblets are slowly baked until meltingly tender, glazed with apricot poaching syrup that has been lightly licked with fermented-chili sauce, then smoked over smouldering maple wood until the edges crackle into a tooth-tugging char.
Kaitlyn Stewart is truly the cat's meow. The 31-year-old bar director at Vancouver's Royal Dinette won the prestigious Diageo World Class competition on Aug. 24 in Mexico City, earning the coveted title of world's best bartender. This makes her the ninth bartender, second woman and first Canadian to join the World Class Hall of Fame, which is sponsored by the London-based alcoholic-beverage company whose portfolio includes brands such as Smirnoff, Crown Royal, Don Julio and Johnnie Walker.
If these walls could talk … Oh, it’s a good thing they don’t. Back in my wild days, before I became a restaurant critic, the Opus Hotel was my favourite weekend stomping ground. I was there for the opening, 15 years ago, when Vancouver got its first chic boutique hotel and Yaletown transformed from a sleepy warehouse district to a bustling hot spot almost overnight.
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".
