In April, Kansas City welcomed the long-awaited Attitude, a breakfast and lunch joint on the corner of 31st and Cherry streets near the Union Hill neighborhood. This quaint shop offers classic fare with a twist. There’s a sign at the cash register bearing a familiar idiom: “Attitude is everything. Pick a good one.” Patti Allen and Greg Kormanik, Attitude’s owners, have taken this to heart, and they’ve infused plenty of personality into every corner of their café.
It’s mid-morning on a Sunday — the golden hours of brunch, let’s call it — and the restaurant is swarming with guests eager for some combination of bacon, eggs and mimosas. A beleaguered barista apologetically asks guests who have just popped in to grab a fresh loaf of country bread and to please just wait a few moments; she’s clearly negotiating with the espresso machine for several lattes for seated diners.
Just two years after Kate Brubacher and her husband, Jesse, opened up The Myers Hotel Bar in Tonganoxie, Kansas, they’ve announced that they'll be shutting the doors for good this month on October 19.The Brubachers are losing their lease, they say, since their landlord recently sold the building. Despite the short-lived tenure, Kate says she has no hard feelings – and she’s looking forward to the next phase of her hospitality career.“I'm looking at a few options,” she says.
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".
