The buyers at Central Market are expecting their order of 330,000 pounds of Hatch chile peppers to arrive soon. That’s good news for those of you who flock to the store to buy not just freshly roasted peppers, but the hundreds of foods and products that will line the shelves during Central Market’s 22nd Annual Hatch Chile Festival, August 9-22, at all CM locations. During that time, the large roasters will be turning over a fire in front of the store, while inside there will be tastings.
Raise your hand if you remember standing in line at Escondido on Butler Street near Maple Avenue. In the mid-70s, Herrera’s down the street on Maple and Escondido were the top places in Dallas for soulful Tex-Mex. Escondido was a tiny family-run joint in an old house. The wooden floors were buckled and creaked. Each room was painted a different color. I preferred the dark purple room in the back. The bright yellow-gold room hurt my hungover eyes. The chips were thin and perfectly greasy.
I know a woman who is a dedicated day drinker. She is always trying to get me to hit the bars in the afternoon. Her rationing is simple: get your drink on before nightfall and go to bed early. With plenty of hydration, according to her, you are less likely to get a hangover. I can’t do it. I don’t drink before 6 p.m. I have a calling, as Kevin O’Leary would say, to make money during the day. My options for supporting myself with night hours are gone. Yesterday I walked into the Midway Point at 3 p.m.
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".
