AURORA | Striding into Mu Brewery on Wednesday nights has begun to feel a bit like stumbling into an episode of “Cheers.”Well, that is, if Norm and the gang also happened to be regular contributors to Pitchfork. Upon entering the Mu threshold anytime after 6 p.m. on Wednesdays, a tight cluster of pals greets newcomers at the door, along with a crinkly, crumbly soundscape that harkens back to a bygone era.
If you can’t find a specific dish in Aurora, you may as well stick to your jalapeño-bacon mac and cheese, friend. Hub cap-sized plates lined with injera? Check. Heaping bowls of kimchi? Of course. Cylindrical roasters overflowing with Hatch green chiles? Naturally. The city has become a bastion of foreign fares, as evidenced by the dozens of tortas-toting, pirogi-peddling establishments tucked within the city’s endless strip malls and shopping centers.
AURORA | Move over, Pizza Hut. The flavored crust game in Colorado just got a little more crowded. The ephemeral favorite of late-night Mario Kart aficionados is no longer the only Colorado pizza joint using a slew of particularly palatable crusts to lure in fans of yeast, tomatoes and rennet-filled milk. Joel Alford is the state’s first franchisee of Hungry Howie’s Pizza, a Michigan-based ‘za brand that claims to be the originator of flavored crust pizza.
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".
