November marks the beginning of holiday season, stretchy pants season, and pie season, and we can’t think of a more appropriate place to celebrate than The Pie Hole. The Pie Hole opened in 2011 as a local family-run pie shop in the Arts District and has since expanded with several locations in L.A., O.C., North Carolina, and Tokyo. Its menu, which includes sweet and savory pies with classic and modern flavors, changes seasonally, and everything is made from scratch.
L.A.’s love affair with the burger began in the 1930s and 1940s with the introduction of classic burger establishments like Bob’s Big Boy in 1936, Tommy’s in 1946, Apple Pan in 1947, Fatburger in 1947, Cassell’s in 1948, In-N-Out in 1948, and, of course, McDonald’s, which opened in 1940 and became a burger stand in 1948. They paved the way for a group of chefs who are doing all sorts of amazing and wonderful things with burgers today.
While malls across America are dying slow and painful deaths, L.A.’s mall scene is thriving. Open-air malls like the Grove and the Americana have become standard destinations for shopping, dining, and entertainment. Over on the west side of town, Westfield Century City, 10250 Santa Monica Blvd., has nearly completed its $1 billion facelift. Yes, that’s one billion dollars.
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".
