A restaurant known for its Vienna beef hotdogs, custard and lean ground-beef hamburgers has broken ground on a new location in the metro area. Freddy's Frozen Custard & Steakburgers has started construction at 5537 Grove Blvd. in Hoover's Grove Shopping Center, and the fast-casual restaurant should open this spring. "The Grove retail corridor is quickly growing, and we look forward to being part of the new development in the area," said Brian Pyle, franchise operator.
A restaurant that once fed John F. Kennedy Jr. and was the subject of a "Alabama Places in Peril" program is going to be torn down. The Alabaster City Council, at its November meeting, gave unanimous approval to demolish the former Blue House Cafe along Alabama 119, according to the Shelby County Reporter. The structure, which is near the Thompson Sixth Grade Center and has been vacant for several years, has been in a state of disrepair for some time.
The potential annexation of hundreds of acres of protected land into Hoover's city limits will be considered in the spring. According to the Hoover Sun, Freshwater Land Trust's request for 259 acres to be annexed into the Hoover city limits has been tabled and will be reconsidered March 5. The land, which is east of Ross Bridge Parkway between Shannon-Oxmoor Road and Shades Crest Road, is home to Shades Creek and has several tributaries running through it.
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".
