Crinkle-cut fries, ShackBurgers and frozen treats are heading west to Fulton Market as lovable New York import Shake Shack opens its fourth location in the Chicago area. Joining spots in River North, the Loop and Old Orchard, the new location will open at 185 North Morgan Street on Wednesday, May 24 at 11am. Playing up the neighborhood's past as the city's manufacturing epicenter, expect Shake Shack's Fulton Market space to have industrial touches throughout.
If you're thinking about getting hitched in Chicago, you might want to start stocking up on ramen packets now. The average Chicago wedding rings up at $60,035, according to a new study from the Knot. The study, which polled a total of 13,000 brides and grooms who wed in 2016, found that the national average clocked in at $35,329. If you're doing the math, that makes a Chicago wedding almost twice as expensive as the national average.
You know that feeling when someone tells you something you already know but it still feels really freaking good to hear it out loud? That's exactly what happened when we heard Condé Nast Traveler named Chicago the Best Restaurant City in America. The publication backed up the claim by citing the James Beard Foundation awards, our wildly talented chefs, Chicago's down-right polite demeanor and, of course, the top-notch restaurants we get to enjoy on the regular.
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".
