Robbie Burns Day—Scotland’s holiday that celebrates beloved poet Robert Burns—is usually commemorated by eating haggis, a peculiar national dish to say the least. Traditionally made with sheep’s stomach, beef or lamb fat, and white onion, it is a savoury pudding that we certainly don’t see much of in Canada. But those looking to mark the holiday, which takes place every year on January 25, can look to a more readily available and popular Scottish import: whisky.
Just in time for its 20th harvest anniversary, South Okanagan winery Tinhorn Creek Vineyards has released The Creek: its flagship concept made up of cabernet sauvignon, cabernet franc, merlot, malbec, and petit verdot. Highlighting the cream of Tinhorn’s crop, The Creek is made up of the best, perfectly ripe grapes, picked painstakingly by hand. The result is an ultra-premium product, with the debut 2014 vintage full of large, complex flavour.
Calling all sweet tooths, cookie monsters, and lovers of butter: the baked goods are waiting. Vancouver is blessed with many famous staple dessert spots, from Thomas Haas and Thierry to Butter Baked Goods and Beaucoup. But here, in MONTECRISTO’s Great Vancouver Bakery Crawl, are some lesser-known purveyors and their delicious sugary treats. When word got out that South Main’s Liberty Bakery was closing down, three Vancouver artists banded together to save it.
@Sethrogen Shalom!!! We both went to Camp Miriam, and I think that makes us equally cool and famous. Would love to interview you for a local Vancouver magazine next time you're in town! Will buy you a Solly's bagel.
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".
