If you’re craving hummus and baba ghanoush and can’t pick one, the plates at ChickPeas have you covered. For less than $10, you get both dips, warm pita wedges and an entree such as beef-and-lamb kabobs aromatic with cumin or a vegan shawarma that tastes truly umami. It’s partially a self-serve buffet, so pile on the cucumber salad, beets and couscous. With locations in Davis and Woodland, ChickPeas recently opened its third outpost in the Lottery building in Sacramento.
Under the afternoon shade, I watched a man putt countless golf balls into a hole as far from him as my burger’s buns were from one another—which is to say, a miniscule distance for a golfer but a chunky size for a burger. The Chubby Churger ($9) suits its name, and the Yelpers are doing backflips: “The (soon-to-be world famous) Chubby Churger (Burger) gets 5 stars by itself,” writes Adam J. V. of Texas, a state that knows its Tex-Mex.
Duck inside the new Ten Ten Room from frenetic 10th Street, and you’ll find a slice of calm and old-school decadence. The shotgun bar has leather booths, chandeliers and a smoking-room vibe. Happy hour lasts till 7 p.m., and it gets you a $6 daily cocktail or $1 off other drinks, including the White Linen Slush (normally $10). It’s classy with the floral flavors of Bulldog gin and elderflower liqueur and refreshing with hints of cucumber and lemon.

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".
