Picture this: You’re on a dream holiday, one with excellent hiking, food tours, museums, and other activities that require a functioning body. But after just one day of pacing through a packed itinerary, your achy feet have trouble keeping up with your ambition and threaten to throw the whole vacation off course. How can you prevent this from happening?
David Alan Grier has had plenty of roles, but he’s primarily known for two: In Living Color and his Tony-nominated run in The Gershwins’ Porgy and Bess, which closes on Broadway this week. But Internet food fans might also know him as the enthusiastic writer behind the food blog Chocolate Glutton, where he chronicles cooking projects like smoking his own bacon and cooking short ribs sous-vide.
The very idea of a “rooftop bar” can conjure up images of too expensive drinks, terrible crowds, and a vibe that’s more “outdoor club” than proper bar. Yet, places do exist that balance stunning views with well-made drinks and snacks. Yes, these spots can get crowded on nice nights, and some do maintain a bit of “scene” — but that’s also sort of the point. This city is full of hidden treasures, and Gallow Green, on the roof of Sleep No More’s McKittrick Hotel, is one of the best.
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".
