BBQ Boss is a “virtual restaurant” hiding in plain sight. The company smokes pork, chicken and beef in a Barrio Logan kitchen. It then loads delicious sandwiches into an electric delivery cart that sets up shop in a downtown San Diego parking lot. Yes, a parking lot. It’s an operation Cosmo Kramer would love. It’s a beef brisket sandwich Homer Simpson could daydream about. And it’s a meal that comes at a price Homer’s frugal boss would spring for: $6.
Ramen has gained a solid foothold within the fast-casual niche in downtown San Diego. Oodles of noodle houses have opened all over the city. Sure, they’re trendy. If they wind up being a flash in the bowl, so be it. I’m going to enjoy them while they’re hot. The average price of a ramen bowl—usually in the $10 range—does seem high. Price point, though, is adversely affected by many people’s relationship with the image of a less-than-a-dollar, grocery store Cup of Soup.
Passover gets a new meaning this Easter Weekend as the Red Bull Air Race comes speeding into the airspace over San Diego Bay. The Red Bull Air Race is a loud series of airplane races during which small planes navigate low to the water around air-filled pylons as fast as possible within an aerial racetrack. Downtowners and chance visitors to the two Embarcadero Marina Parks on the bay (behind the San Diego Convention Center) got a free show on Friday.
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".
