The Legends of McRib Launch Party


“Bring your appetite” was the only favor asked of us before attending The Legends of McRib Launch Party. On Tuesday night, O So Chic headed to McDonald’s in Times Square to celebrate the long awaited return of the McRib sandwich. The pork patty, that is molded into the shape of ribs,  is deemed the “Legend” of McDs with its limited releases over the past 29 years.
Once escorted past the velvet ropes, we were greeted by a gigantic McRib. McDonald’s set up various stations for the amusement of media and die-hard McRib fans alike. On one side of the room, there was a photobooth station where you could take pictures with McRib themes as the backdrop.

Then there were the McRib fans. Did you know that people actually roadtrip in search of the McRib, count how many they’ve eaten and use McRib locators in search of McDonald’s legendary sandwich? The McRib lovin’ didn’t stop there. Attendees were able rhapsodize about their old or newfound love of the McRib on camera.

Bloggers chatted, interviewed McRib fans and feasted on multiple servings of McRibs and fries. That was my first time eating a McRib, which was smothered in barbecue sauce and topped off with onions and pickles. Yummy!

McDonald’s filled our bellies and didn’t let us leave empty-handed. Our swag bag included: a McRib tee, McRib coupons, wet wipes and more. Those wet wipes will surely come in handy after eating the McRib in all of its barbecue sauce splendor.

For the first time in YEARS, the McRib will be available at EVERY U.S. location from Nov 2nd – 22nd. Get it while you can ladies and gentlemen because – the legend has returned.
