Smorgasburg LA is known for being a source of deliciousness in DTLA, and this Sunday, September 24, the outdoor market is throwing itsÂ Fried Chicken Day. â€œBut wait,â€? you may be thinking, â€œDidnâ€™t National Fried Chicken Day happen back in July?â€? Sure. Thatâ€™s correct. Fried Chicken Day is celebrated nationwide on July 6, but that doesnâ€™t mean we canâ€™t celebrate two fried chicken days. This is still America, comrade.
In the 2008 movie Step Brothers, several scenes take place at an outdoor gala called the Catalina Wine Mixer. So when Ben Villalobos moved to Catalina from his home in England and took on the role of Corporate Director of Special Events at the Catalina Island Company, one of the first things he asked his new coworkers was, “So, when is this event?” They informed him that the party from the movie was purely fictional. He decided it was time for life to imitate art.
I understand the pumpkin-spice backlash—the flavor is everywhere, and it’s not even October yet—but when I saw the latest coffee offering from Vinoteca, I gasped at its cuteness. It turns out all I needed to reignite my pumpkin-spice passion was a coffee-art jack-o-lantern. Just look at those bright triangular eyes! The creamy white teeth! The delicate sprinkling of spice freckles!
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".
