Every so often adults get a little fussy. Who can blame them? Dealing with mortgages, open enrollment, and the jerk from IT can make the best of us want to throw a temper tantrum. Sometimes the only thing that can soothe the nerves is to eat like a kid. Luckily, San Antonio restaurants are right there with us — serving nostalgic favorites that instantly ease the pressures of the day. And since it’s unseemly for you to carry a binky, this is the next best thing.
A city as old as San Antonio is bound to have a few ghosts roaming the streets. From the San Fernando Cathedral to those famous railroad tracks at Shane Road, a variety of spooks, souls, and specters are rumored to make nightly appearances at our many historical stomping grounds. But we like to do our ghost hunting with a full stomach. This month's Where to Eat takes us to the shadowy corners of Alamo City’s most haunted restaurants for some tricks and more than a few treats.
Fall has arrived, ushering in a new season of shopping. That means you need some sit-down sustenance to plot your next sale strategy. For this month’s Where to Eat, we’re visiting The Shops at La Cantera for retail therapy and some surprisingly sophisticated fare. Cafe Bistro at Nordstrom Trying to fit in to those jeans on the bottom floor of Nordstrom is easier than you think with the healthy menu at their in-house cafe.
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".
