How many chefs can say they’ve cooked for both Missy (Misdemeanor) Elliott and the Prince of Dubai? Maxcel Hardy can, and Detroit is about to find out what a chef to the stars can do. Hardy, who spent five years as former NBA star Amar’e Stoudemire’s personal chef, is readying to open three new restaurants in Detroit within the next year.
Editor’s Note: Restaurateur Eli Boyer, proprietor of Voyager in Ferndale,announced his plans to open a burger-focused concept in the main-floor retail space of 28 Grand, a new microloft development in Detroit’s Capitol Park. This prompted our restaurant critic to write an open letter to Boyer, begging him to reconsider. The last thing downtown needs is another burger joint.
It used to be that Chicago’s best-known culinary offerings were hot dogs loaded with weird salad fixings, Italian hot beef sandwiches and saucy casseroles locals for some reason still refer to as “pizza” with a straight face. But that’s a pretty old-school view of a town that’s become a dining vanguard over the last few decades. Today, Chicago is one of America’s great food cities and only one of four metro areas in the country where the vaunted Michelin Guide operates.
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".
