If you're looking for some things to keep you busy during the chilly weekend ahead, look no further. Kick it off tonight with a walking tour led by SF artist Paz de la Calzada starting at the Tenderloin museum. Lock down your Friday night with a pancakes-centric art show in SoMa, a musical about modern day technology in Union Square or swing by the Circus Center in Cole Valley for $5 off trapeze, rope and aerial silk classes.
This is the shortest day of the year, but you still have time to plan the long Christmas weekend ahead. Get a head start tonight for the first of two holiday shows at SF Oasis headlined by X-Factor finalist Jason Brock, who'll be joined by a trio comprised of singer Paula West, flutist Gerald Beckett, and Dee Spencer, founder of the SFSU Jazz Department. "It's going to sound and feel amazing," Brock told Hoodline.
Grab an extra layer and head out this weekend because the city is bustling with fun and unique activities—many of them holiday-related. Start it off tonight with the second-annual North Beach Holiday Walk before checking out a silent skate party in Union Square, a double film feature at the Tenderloin Museum, or some experimental standup, comedy and live music at PianoFight.
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".
