Lucy Margaux Wildman Blanc Varietal: Sauvignon Blanc Region: Adelaide Hills, Australia Price: ~$35 (Sorry I was buzzed when I bought it & can't find the receipt) Retailer: Ordinaire Distributor: T. Edward Â My father-in-law is quite a character, the kind of guy who is usually addressed as The Danimal and starts most of his stories with, "Well, we were on quaaludes..." This past weekend, he was telling me about this time he and his buddy were waterskiing when they decided to drop their trunks...
Most people would say that the dinner is the most important part of a dinner party, but I would argue it’s having enough wine. You can pull a Tim Allen and turn a turkey into a wildfire, and no one will care if there are plenty of bottles to go around. Wine starts conversations, complements dishes (you didn’t burn), and keeps the party going. But how many bottles of wine are “enough wine”? To start, you need to know how many glasses are in a bottle of wine.
When it comes to sparkling wine, your brain immediately goes to Champagne. And then your bank account is immediately like, “LOL, NO.” The good news is you don’t have to spend a fortune to get a festive bottle of bubbly . While Champagne may have all the name recognition, it’s not the only kind of sparkling wine in the game. Here are four others to be on the lookout for that will have the party poppin’ without jeopardizing your credit card payments.
And here's a hot tip for ya. If someone takes the time to explain how & why you've offended them, acknowledge that you offended them & apologize. Reiterating what you did or didn't mean does not make a difference. It makes you an asshole.
If you think my career or success has anything to do with a few dozen photos, take a second to pull your head out of your ass to maybe read my 300 page book or one of the 50-something articles for Bon Appétit I've written in the last two years
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".
