Get ready for Oktoberfests, neighborhood celebrations, block parties, tasting events, and more. Philly is full of food and drink fêtes this fall, from now through November. Kennett Square’s annual celebration of all things fungi in the Mushroom Capital of the World attracts 100,000 people. Now in its 32nd year, the festival stretches a mile long and features culinary events, cooking competitions, growing exhibits, children’s entertainment, and 250 vendors. It’s pay as you go.
With school back in session, destinations and museums will be less crowded in the coming months. Plan a trip to experience one of these 11 exhibits — the best out there this fall. The Jim Henson Exhibition at Museum of the Moving Image in New York City July 2017 - permanentNew York City’s museum dedicated to film and television pays tribute to Jim Henson’s groundbreaking work in a new, permanent exhibit.
While Philly is by no means considered a barbecue town, the city has an appreciation for the many variations of smoked meat. Like all good things in life, barbecue is an expression of passion and a product of patience. In the U.S., it's all about the low-and-slow, the T.L.C., the near-incessant coddling and care required to make something beautiful out of hunks of meat. It's about tinkering and toying until the rub or sauce recipe and smoke time is just right.
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".
