The Church and Market Safeway is back to operating 24 hours. According to a sign posted at the store, located at 2020 Market St., the change went into effect last week on Wednesday, September 13th. Six months ago, Safeway decided that its supermarkets across the city would no longer be open 24 hours. At the time, Safeway spokesperson Wendy Gutshall told us "we continuously evaluate our operations and make adjustments where needed in our stores."
Coffee shop Café UB (18th & Sanchez) is set to shutter over the Labor Day weekend, joining Zapata Mexican Grill, Mekong Kitchen and House of Chen in a list of recent neighborhood closures. Owner Al Simball took over the space in 2013 when it was then Urban Bread. Along with his girlfriend and café manager Nicole Martin, the couple rebranded as Café UB, serving a variety of pastries, artisan breads, frittatas and breakfast and lunch sandwiches.
Vietnamese comfort food eatery Mekong Kitchen, at 4039 18th St. between Noe and Hartford streets, has called it quits after nearly two-and-a-half years. This marks the second restaurant closing in the Castro during the past week. Last Friday, Zapata Mexican Grill closed after 23 years in business. Mekong Kitchen opened in 2015, taking the place of Urban Picnic after a concept change from owner Trang Nguyen.
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".
