Since childhood, two Bluffton friends have been collecting toys such as Hot Wheels and Transformers — and now it is all for sale. Frank Capuzello and Bryan Puffinburger opened Frank ‘n’ Puffs Toys and Comics earlier this month at 11 Buckingham Plantation Drive in Bluffton. Thousands of toys, from the usual — G.I. Joes — to the unusual — Gilligan’s Island trading cards, fill every spare spot of space in a tiny room the duo have rented.
Alljoy Donut Co. opened its doors at 22 Thomas Heyward St. in Bluffton earlier this month. The shop offers doughnuts galore, with specialty designs including a crab-shaped doughnut and flavors such as maple pecan. The husband and wife duo, Bill and Donna Ellis, said they initially planned to serve up a limited breakfast menu at the location, but demand for their doughnuts was so high they decided to concentrate on that. “We are already going full out with what we are offering,” Donna said Tuesday.
Choo Choo BBQ has a new owner who is bringing a few of his touches to the long-running restaurant in Bluffton. Thomas Corey took over the business last month. The Bluffton resident has worked as a chef for about 27 years, previously at the Smokehouse on Hilton Head and for the SERG Restaurant Group at Black Marlin, he said Tuesday. Much of the menu will remain the same at the Choo Choo BBQ, Corey said.
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".
