During this Thanksgiving week a grateful shout-out to all the great local restaurants, eateries and cafes we’ve got in the greater Redding area — like baker extraordinaire Kathleen Saxer’s Downtown Java & Cafe, home to great coffee drinks, hard-to-resist pastries and an eclectic breakfast and lunch menu, not to mention an equally diverse and delightful cast of “Cheers”-like regulars. I ate there twice last week.
In need of some “comfort food” — owing to the cooler weather at last— the first thing that came to mind was the filet mignon meatloaf on the lunch menu at Clearie’s Restaurant and Lounge in downtown Redding. Clearie’s is a great place for a business lunch, a rendezvous with friends or to dine alone, as I was. The surprisingly reasonable lunch menu (my dish was just $12) is served from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. I also opted for a side salad with a delicious pesto balsamic dressing ($4).
To say downtown Redding has a new gourmet ice cream place doesn’t do justice to Taste & See Creamery. You’ve likely never tasted anything like it. The ever-changing line-up of a dozen or so flavors includes maple syrup brown sugar candied bacon, Nutella bonfire s’mores, bourbon brown butter pecan, balsamic roasted strawberry and blueberry goat cheesecake. Four dollars will get you a huge scoop. A hand-made waffle cone and toppings such as cayenne caramel, candied walnuts and Butterfingers are extra.
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".
