To many, the revitalization of The Quarters, a 40-hectare area east of Edmonton's downtown, seems off to a slow start. The glistening, glass-faced Hyatt Place Hotel at 95th Street and Jasper Avenue has been the only new kid on the block since it opened its doors in the summer of 2016. A half-block east, the deep, muddy maw of a once-abandoned condo project and the boarded-up Miramar restaurant remain long-standing blights.
It took me a while to get to Pip, the youngest sibling to Meat and The Next Act Pub on 104 Street. Baconhound has been yipping about them since they opened. For CBC Edmonton AM’s Best Restaurants 2017 segment, he named them as his pick for Best Brunch, talking about their “elevated take comfort food” and quality ingredients. I liked the sounds of that. In February, I went with Phil and his wife back to Pip. He was right, Pip’s brunch was stellar.
While the rest of Edmonton slept in on Family Day, a few of us headed to Pip in hopes of securing a spot in line for when the doors opened at 10 a.m.Unbeknownst to us, the owners decided to fire up the kitchen an hour earlier than scheduled. By the time we arrived, the 28-seat room was half full. The restaurant is the youngest sibling to Meat and The Next Act — same-block neighbours in Old Strathcona.
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".
