At the center of David Howard’s new true-crime book, Chasing Phil: The Adventures of Two Undercover Agents with the World’s Most Charming Con Man (Crown), is Chicago native Phillip Kitzer, a smooth-talking fraudster who swindled millions of dollars from people and operated across state and international borders. The book dives into Kitzer’s life and tells the story of the young, rank-and-file FBI agents who took him down in the bureau’s first-ever undercover investigation of white-collar crimes.
We won’t be surprised if newly opened Bar Cargo (605 N. Wells St.) becomes the go-to refueling spot for River North’s throngs of club- and bar-goers. The newest addition to the Stefani family’s restaurant empire offers crispy, gooey, thick, Roman-style pizza served up quickly—think under ten minutes for a full pizza. Wash it all down with a selection of cocktails, wines, and beers. Here’s what we saw when we stopped by.
Logan Square newbie the Moonlighter (3204 W. Armitage Ave.) opts to forgo the frills. The team behind Scofflaw and Slippery Slope places an emphasis on beers, cocktails, burgers, and bar snacks in the TV-lined space. Even without considering the spot’s massive patio, this bar is huge, with tons of tables, a long bar, and all sorts of cushy seating. And come summertime, you can bring your pup to that oversized patio. Here’s what we saw when we stopped in.
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".
