Somewhere along the way James Lee Burke changed. That's a funny thing to say about someone who's been as consistent as Burke's been over the course of 35 novels, two collections of short stories and nearly three decades on The New York Times' bestseller list.
click to enlarge What you're drinking: The latest seasonal from Great Burn Brewing. This traditional Belgian ale is brewed with 20 pounds of pitted and crushed Flathead cherries and local honey, but, rest assured, it's not at all a fruity-tasting or too-sweet beer. What it does taste like: A traditional Belgian ale with a subtle cherry finish.
click to enlarge What it is: The sort of refreshing cocktail you're reaching for during the dog days of summer. Also, Mexico's most beloved cocktail-even more popular than a margarita. How to make it: Combine two ounces of reposado tequila (that means "aged;" we recommend Herradura), a half-ounce of fresh lime juice, a splash of club soda and grapefruit juice over ice in a highball glass.
For two months, Katie Barnes ate the type of dessert that would leave most people salivating: deep-fried bunyols (also known as buñuelos) with dark chocolate filling, accompanied by a rhubarb caramel sauce, fresh strawberries and pistachio-butter ice cream topped with caramel brittle. But there was a catch. Or a few catches, actually.
What you're drinking: A Grizzly Berry, made with The Montana Distillery's signature Woody St. Premium Vodka, puree from local huckleberries and organic lemonade, topped with soda and a lemon wedge. It's one of the cocktails available at the distillery's downtown tasting room, located on (you guessed it) Woody Street, around the corner from the Silver Dollar Bar.

Anthony Bourdain's award-winning CNN travel show, "Parts Unknown," traveled to Butte, Livingston and some surrounding areas late last year.

It's Philipsburg Brewing's world, and we're all just living-and drinking?-in it. The small-town brewery capped off a memorable weekend by sweeping the major awards at the May 7 Garden City BrewFest at Caras Park.
click to enlarge Today marks the release of Criminal, a film starring Kevin Costner, Gary Oldman, Tommy Lee Jones and Ryan Reynolds (who is curiously not listed on the movie poster). Initial reviews say it is awful. Laughably awful. Cringe-worthy awful. "It's like the movie was written in crayon, in the margins of a comic book."
John Fleming at Ear Candy Music sounds out of breath on the phone-and for good reason. Saturday is national Record Store Day, and it marks the busiest day of the year at Ear Candy as customers line up early for special deals, promotional giveaways and the chance to grab limited edition releases specially made for vinyl's grand holiday.
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 politicians Barack Obama and Mitt Romney 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
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.
