Steak. Cheesy carbs. Greens. What Beef loving Texan wouldn’t swoon for this meal on Valentine’s Day? When My Table was asked if we’d like to feature a recipe from chef Hugo Ortega for home chefs to drool over, how could we resist? Did you know that Valentine’s Day is the second busiest dining-out day of the year in the United States? Mothers Day takes the top spot.
If you’ve driven through the East End in recent months you’ll have noticed several mom-and-pop restaurants and bars either revitalizing their storefront or opening completely new concepts such as Nancy’s Hustle and Alfred’s Burger House. After close to a year of waiting, the public can now enjoy Coral Sword, a new coffee shop and gaming center, also open in the East End.
What a winter it has been in Houston. We had a real snow day in December, and two days of wintery mix earlier this month. This time of year is always a gamble: temps could be in the 70s, or it can be bitterly cold. This weather pattern will likely continue through February, too. Will spring ever return? Of course, it will warm up. And spring will be short-lived and summer will overstay its welcome.
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".
