In many ways, Cuties Coffee is simply a coffee shop. The menu is uncomplicated: espresso for $3, cold brew for $5. The teas are made in-house, including hibiscus, lychee black and English breakfast. The snacks are purchased from local businesses, like vegan and gluten-free donuts from Erin McKenna’s Bakery on Larchmont, and sandwiches from Friends and Family and Bread Lounge. Design-wise, Cuties is more unicorn vibes than unicorn beverages.
Strolling past the vegan ramen and fancy PB&J vendors that have taken up residence in Grand Central Market, it’s tough to imagine Angelenos a century ago visiting the butcher and baker, then boarding Angel’s Flight back to their homes on Bunker Hill (it was a suburb back then). Over just the last five years, the market experienced explosive growth with an influx of gourmet and high-end vendors, which came with a share of controversy in the midst of the ongoing gentrification of downtown.
It’s no secret that Koreatown is a magical place. The three-square-mile neighborhood offers an experience unlike anywhere else in Los Angeles. Preserved art deco structures mingle with 1980s strip malls and newly built mega complexes. Karaoke houses, pirate bars, plush speakeasies and a dizzying selection of restaurants make it arguably the most exciting neighborhood in the city. And one of the more recent additions to the treasure trove: beautiful ice cream.
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".
