With all tickets sold out the week before, 500 lucky farm-to-fork fans who pre-purchased their tickets enjoyed the fifth annual Bounty of the County culinary extravaganza Wednesday at the Gold Miners Inn in Grass Valley. The fundraiser featured small plate tastings, ranging from meatballs on baked eggplant to beef brisket with cabernet fig glaze. Just prior to the event, organizers had asked 16 regional farms and ranches what types of produce and meat they had ripe and ready.
A Grass Valley restaurant that's become a mecca for lovers of authentic Italian cuisine will close its doors later this month. Chef Gianfranco Naffezzoni will serve the final meals at Trattoria Milano Sept. 17. Trattoria Milano serves an average of 40 to 90 dinners each night, Tuesday through Sunday. The restaurant seats 74 inside, plus another 40 on its outdoor patio. Naffezzoni said he is looking for a smaller facility. "I'd like a restaurant with a maximum of 40 seats," he said.
The guest of honor at a Sept. 22 fundraiser will be surrounded by gentlemen in freshly-pressed suits and ladies in beautiful dresses, yet he'll arrive on four legs. That guest of honor is Rüdiger, Nevada City's K9 cop. "This is an opportunity to continue the connectivity between our amazing law enforcement agencies and our amazing community," said Joey Jordan, President of the Rüdiger Foundation. "Our agencies may not have the funding to equip the officers so they can be safe.
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".
