When longtime accountant and food-lover Alesia DeBoer and her husband, Richard, were living in Phoenix, they loved the local spots that served wine before dinner, with just a few small plates to enjoy between sips of their favorite vintages. That’s the idea they had in mind when they opened their spiffy, streamlined Stompin Barley in a new Carmel strip mall, pouring local and craft beers and plenty of wine.
Fall Creek residents who bemoaned the closing of one of their precious few neighborhood dining options, LongBranch, in May didn’t have to wait long until they had another. And former Plow & Anchor executive chef John Herndon didn’t have long to explore other avenues for his creative talents before he was back on the line.
If the lack of available parking was cited as a reason for the shutdown and reconfiguration of Plow and Anchor, the locavore surf-and-turf standout that opened at Pennsylvania and 9th Street in the spring of 2014, the crowds of hungry lunch-goers last week weren’t showing it. But when there’s a taco, there’s a way. Put out the word that you’ll be hand-pressing tortillas filled with carne asada and pork al pastor, and people will walk, bike, bus, or fight for the last street spot to get a taste.
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".
