McDonalds debuted the relaunch of their McRib here in New York, Times Square last Tuesday, November 2, 2010. The soirée consisted of Media, Media, Fans, and more Media.
I, the Kitty Bradshaw, hadn’t tasted a McRib since its second relaunch back in 1994. To be honest, I couldn’t remember what the sandwich tasted like. Thanks to a successful RE-RE-RE-Launch; guest were treated to all you can eat McRibs, French Fries, and Beverages. I was so caught up in the moment I even filmed a video for the franchise…. *crossing my fingers that it airs during the Super Bowl, lollll.
As I mentioned before, in attendance where three super fanatics of the McRib sandwich Alan Klein of www.kleincast.com, Joey Erwin of South Carolina who holds the record for most McRibs consumed on a daily basis, and Adam Winer whose claim to fame is taking on road adventures around the country in search of the elusive McRib. Lucky for him the McRib will be available from November 2nd – 22nd, 2010.
Just when you thought it couldn’t get any better at the McRib launch party, McDonalds handed out gift bags filled with coupons, t-shirts, wet naps, mints, pens…. all the things you need after completing your McRib meal. *thinking* They forgot the gym membership, lollll. j/k
