Last week I was invited to Vapiano in the Corn Exchange to try out their menu. I’ve previously been before but since going plant based I’ve not paid them a visit so I was intrigued as to what they had to offer for vegans.Vapiano has a unique ‘fast restaurant’ concept whereby you’re each given a chip card to personally order your food at the different food stations and watch it being made right in front of you.
There's many things I love about Manchester but as a dog owner one of them has to be how dog friendly the city is (aside from the pesky Metrolink *shakes fist*). Most cafes, bars and restaurants now accept dogs but now shops and convenient stores are also allowing our little four legged friends to wander in too. I'm always to tweet a place and ask if they're dog friendly so I thought I'd round up as many eateries and drinking spots I could think of and pop them into a dog friendly list/ map.
The term vegan is being thrown around like a confetti and that's certainly not a bad thing. Although some people will say it's become a 'trend', if it means that you're making people more aware of an industry by educating them, then to hell with it, it's a trend. But the fact brands are now stating whether something is 'vegan' is incredible helpful to making that lifestyle easier.
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".
