Usually McDonald's (multiple locations) brings its popular seasonal McRib sandwich back to menus across America in the fall. However, in September, Advertising Age leaked a memo from the McDonald's Operators National Advertising Fund stating the sandwich won't hit menus till December to boost end-of-the-year sales.
Well at least, most cities in America won't see the McRib until December. At McDonald's restaurants in the greater St. Louis area, however, the much-loved McRib returns today.
And to celebrate St. Louis being at the forefront of McRib nation, Gut Check is hosting a contest to give away eighteen free McRib sandwich coupons.
Update: The first round of winners is listed after the jump -- and there's still eight left to giveaway, so share a couplet below for your chance to snag a free McRib.
To enter to win one of eighteen free McRib sandwich gift cards, write us a two-line couplet (Hint: it should rhyme) that captures what you love about the McRib in the comments section below. Couplets longer than two lines will not be considered.
Updated [Monday, November 19, 1:32 p.m.]: The first round of winners to receive a complimentary McRib gift card are listed below. If you didn't leave contact information (e-mail address, Facebook or Twitter account) please email lizDOTmillerATriverfronttimesDOTcom to claim your prize.
In addition to doling out eighteen complimentary McRib sandwiches, Gut Check would also like to offer one Mitchell Kerman, a.k.a. the Scamwich Artist, two free McRib sandwich gift cards. Why? Because Mr. Kerman obviously loves sandwiches, and we think it might be nice if he experienced ordering one in an honest way.
Mr. Kerman, for you, no couplet is required. Simply drop by the Riverfront Times offices to claim your gift cards.
