According to a sign that recently appeared in the window of a now-defunct Fillmore sandwich shop, one of the city's last neighborhoods without a marinated fish shop is about to get poke'd. I'a Poke, which currently has outposts in SoMa and the Castro, is slated to open early next year at 1515 Fillmore St. (at O'Farrell). I'a launched its first location in the Castro last April; the SoMa spot is now having a soft opening.
For those who blur the line between dinner and dessert, the news of Portland-based ice cream outlet Salt & Straw's expansion to San Francisco has been greeted with anticipation. While its shops in Pacific Heights and Hayes Valley are still under construction, ice cream fans can get a sneak peak of Salt & Straw's unusual flavors—like blue cheese and pear or ramen—at three pop-ups around the city, starting tonight.
Hoodline reported on the imminent opening of Hitachino Beer & Wagyu back in June. Leading up to SF Beer Week this month, another false start was reported by Eater. At present, a firm opening still has yet to be set. Recent rains delayed the schedule of finishing touches, says Chef Noriyuki Sugie.
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".
