When it comes to tequila, few restaurants in town know the libation better than La Mezcaleria (1622 Commercial Drive and 68 East Cordova Street). (If you've yet to nab a tequila or mezcal flight at the local spot, we recommend doing so stat. Or, better yet, stop by during happy hour for one of La Mez's stiff Palomas. Thank us later.) So when we heard it was National Tequila Day this Monday (July 24), we knew just where to turn for our next sip.
Vancouverites will be able to influence the look of one of the city’s most recognizable structures—and in turn, the local skyline—once OH!, a new public art installation, launches this summer. Situated outside Olympic Village’s Tap and Barrel (1 Athletes Way), the project is comprised of a scale model of Science World’s distinctive dome that’s covered with 240 movement-detecting sensors and LED lights.
Online eyewear provider Clearly has launched its first ecofriendly collection: six unisex frames crafted from a biodegradable acetate that are broken down once wearers decide to move on to a different style. Titled Main + Central, the line was developed in-house at Clearly’s Vancouver HQ. Named after the days of the week—with Saturday and Sunday being represented by the oversized "Weekend"—the frames are available in black, brown, teal, and transparent shades and small, medium, and large sizes.
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".
