In spite of its location in the bustling West Loop, the Press Room (1134 W. Washington Blvd.) offers a cozy refuge to sit back and relax. Less than a month in business, this wine bar makes you feel like it’s been around for ages. Nestled in the basement, large windows offer passersby a glimpse of the European cafe culture inspiration. While the Press Room offers an assortment of wine to choose from, you don’t have to know much to enjoy the spot.
Parson’s Chicken and Fish (2952 W. Armitage Ave., Logan Square) has become nearly synonymous with patio season in Chicago. How? The enormous outdoor seating area with perks like a ping pong table and firepit, for one. Plus, there’s the delicious boozy slushies (the Negroni is the most popular) and the perfectly fried chicken. It’s the kind of place that will extend your personal outdoor dining season.
Come 4 p.m. Sunday, Chicagoans can feast on some Mississippi Delta cuisine without embarking down the Mississippi River. As Chicago reported in April, The Delta (1745 W. North Ave., Wicker Park) will serve up the region’s “unapologetic country cooking,” including "red hot” tamales and grilled whole catfish, along with craft cocktails. It’s the brainchild of Eldridge Williams, a veteran Chicago restaurant manager (Girl & the Goat, The Promontory, Bangers & Lace) with roots in Memphis.
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".
