From time to time, I’ll share what I’m eating and drinking out on the town, from Juno Beach to Miami. I travel a lot, mostly in Palm Beach County, but sometimes to our southern cousin counties. And when I have memorable experiences, I’ll share them with people who understand. That would be you. I’ll start off this feature with a tip for a great drink—or two—from Max’s Harvest new-ish lead bartender, Ivan Cerna. His invention of a fig Old-Fashioned, “The Gentleman,” is a beauty.
Shake off the last of the fallen leaves from your beachside duds, and head over to Oceans 234 Sept. 24. By the ocean, you’ll be able to attend “Claws for a Cause,” which means enjoying a lobster bake created by Executive Chef William Middleton while supporting B The Difference. This nonprofit raises funds for research to find a cure for Neurofibromatosis (NF), as well as supporting individuals and their families who are battling NF.
Nowhere in Florida did Hurricane Irma do more extensive and deadly damage than our wonderful, tropical Florida Keys. Sadly, some people lost their lives, and others lost everything they owned. It will be months before life returns to even semi-normal there. Because of that, three noted chefs in the West Palm Beach area are joining forces to serve a special dinner that will benefit those Keys victims.
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".
