Diner Grill was supposed to be reopened by now, more than a year after a fire forced the closure of the now-79-year-old restaurant. Owner Arnold DeMar hoped to be back open in November, but he’s blaming construction delays on contractors. However, there were signs on Friday morning that a return would soon happen as crews were outside the restaurant putting up Diner Grill’s new signage at 1635 W. Irving Park Road. The tiny restaurant could “hopefully” open in February, according to DeMar.
A new bar is pegged for a Friday debut inside the former Northdown Cafe and Taproom near Lincoln and Belmont. Wooden Nickel Bar & Grill is owned by the same team behind Floyd’s Pub in Bucktown and the new bar at 3244 N. Lincoln Avenue in North Center will have a strong commitment to craft beer. They’ll also serve food. They’ve cleaned the space up, but the basic layout remains the same. The area above the bar will be decorated with wooden carvings featuring local sports teams.
The fallout from the Grace shutter continues as the restaurant’s former owner says it wasn’t his fault that the revered West Loop restaurant closed in December. Michael Olszewski, a prominent developer, blamed chef Curtis Duffy and said he found out that the chef had quit by reading about his departure. Olszewski said Duffy didn’t show up for work, then staff didn’t show up, and that lead to its closure.
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".
