Started by an improv troupe in New York City, this group event—which is exactly what it sounds like, and yes, you still have to wear underwear, creep—has become a weird little tradition, spreading to cities across the world. It’ll be especially gutsy this year in Boston considering the icy weather we’ve been having, but that’ll just make it funny and impressive. Bone Up Brewery celebrates the invention of its cute little skeleton mascot, and everybody’s invited to—what else—drink beer.
The irreverence and camp of the Gold Dust Orphans is pretty much summed up by the title of their newest Christmas show, which adds to the famously messed up 1962 tragedy “Whatever Happened to Baby Jane?” the one thing it’s always needed: Christmas cheer! If you like Joan Crawford and/or Bette Davis, aren’t puritanical and don’t care for good taste, check it out.
Each holiday season, the Boston Society of Architects invites some local firms to apply all their precision and expertise to create deliciously charming gingerbread models of local landmarks. The show is open all month, but if you’ve got kids you should bring them on Saturday, when they’ll be able to make their own sugary structures. Each Christmastime, WGBH Celtic music DJ Brian O’Donovan hosts a stacked lineup of music and dance from across the Celtic diaspora.
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".
