When four 20-something friends decided to open a couple of bars, they never imagined they were founding a company that would grow to include more than 20 venues with some 450 employees in two Midwest cities. But that's the story of Four Entertainment Group (4EG), the company behind successful local bars and restaurants including Mount Adams Pavilion, Righteous Room, Igby's and three Keystone Bar & Grill locations.
For two minutes on Aug. 21, day will be night. But to see this astronomical event, it's all about the right time, right place – and right weather. We can predict a couple of these factors now, about two months before what's being dubbed the "Eclipse Across America." The time? That's 10:19 a.m. if you're on Oregon coast. Or 2:41 p.m. on the South Carolina shore. In other words, the exact timing depends on the place.
After closing its Westwood location back in February, Tap & Screw Brewery is ready to reopen in Madisonville. It will open at 4 p.m. Thursday, with a grand opening planned for July 6. The new 7,000-square-foot space at 4721 Red Bank Road (across from the under-construction Dolce Hotel) will serve as a production brewery and also houses a 1,500-square-foot tap room. The latter has an artistic look, said Adam Lorenz, co-owner and head brewer.
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".
