Cactus Jack at Mickey D’s

Travis Scott x McDonald’s Collab

Lit or Pretty standard. It’s Selling Pretty Furious Fast. And anything with Travis Scott or Cactus Jack on it will sell Easy-Peasy-Parcheesy

The Travis Scott McDonald’s Meal released today. Yes pun intended. On 9/8/20 the Travis Scott meal was released to the General Public. Lines were long and the meal is selling quickly. They say it will be available for a month, I’d say its gone in less than 14 days. The Lobster roll lasted in Hawaii for about 10 days then it was gone, not to return.

The Travis Scott Meal is a Quarter Pounder with Cheese, Bacon, Lettuce, Onions, Pickles, Mustard + Ketchup with Medium Fries, a BBQ dipping Sauce and a Sprite with Ice. Supposed to be $6, but most likely more in Alaska, Hawaii, NYC($7) and some other pertinent places across the world. And it does not include a Toy. But you can buy the merch here

Travis Scott x McDonald’s Collab Merch

Wow! There is a TON of Merch for this Collab. Including 24 T-Shirts!! Hoodies, and Hats. You can get Denim or Boxer shorts or many variations of pants including Work-Wear, Denim and Sweatpants! Plus, a Beanie, Rug, Patch, Basketball, Tie & Socks.

I like the Vintage metal Lunch Box…complete with Thermos, the tie-dye shirts, Lunch Tray, Styrofoam Cups, Basketball Jersey and basketball Shorts!

Then there’s the Life Sized cut out of Travis and a pretty Sketchy realistic lookin’ McNugget pillow! The pillow must be made for a McLovin’ super fans.

And Cactus Jack Styrofoam cups, Uhm, McDonald’s doesn’t seem like one to promote “Drank” but the styro cups are available at the Merch Store The cups even come in party ready packs of 10! Maybe it’s the transparent world we live in 2020 that makes it acceptable? Or maybe they may not know? Or they are awaiting someone like me to type about it, to get publicity then take it off the website. Not sure if you remember but many years ago McDonald’s gave away stirs that were supposed to be for Coffee. But people used to snort coke. That was probably 30 years ago. And they received a lot of publicity from those stir sticks before they were pulled from the franchises.

The Cactus Jack Styrofoam “Purple Syrup” Cups will be the first item to SELL-OUT and if they do pull them from the site, the best item to resell on Ebay. I would also try and and get your hands on one of the Tie-Dye shirts, the Basketball jersey or the Vintage metal lunchbox with THERMOS! Those will all re sell highest of the High

If you read Streetzblog, you know we like Jordan. That was the last time we saw a Celebrity Quarter Pounder. No celebrity has had their name on a McDonald’s meal since the McJORDAN back in 1992. It was a quarter pounder with cheese, with bacon, onions, pickles, Tomato, mustard (No lettuce) and BBQ sauce for the burger. Price $1.99. And they sold collectable cups of your favorite NBA players. Fun Fact: A Bottle of real and rare McJORDAN BBQ sauce sold on Ebay for $9,995!!!

20 Years Before 2000: The McJordan Special

Batman also had a burger. It came with some delicious looking cheesy fries ad a very Hip commercial

We leave you with a couple of Travis Scott Tunes. I always want to call this one Highest of the High, not sure why? I do have this shirt and like the nice man at SNKRFLEA on Broadway said: It will continue to go up in price and it has. Got it for $80. It’s now $160 on a Japenese website I was on last week (Week of 8/31/20)

Festival Season Heats Up in Chicago

The Belmont-Sheffield Music Festival

Very near the Belmont El Stop Sunday May 2018

Heading to Chicago from Memorial Day to Labor Day? I’d suggest checking out one or more of the vast Street Fests in and around town.  Some of the Bigger events include the Taste of Chicago, Lallapalooza, Mole De Mayo, The Great American Lobster Fest, Chicago House Music Festival, Many Greek Fests, The Chicago Blues Fest, Ribfest Chicago, The Grant Park Music Fest and the various neighborhood Street parties.

Streetzblog checked out the Belmont-Sheffield Music Festival on Sunday May 26, 2018  From 7:30-9:45pm.  It’s located just below the Belmont Street El Station.  You get off the train walk across the street and there’s the fest. Super easy, very safe, extremely accessible and costs just $5 to get in.

The Street Party had a vast array of ethnically diverse things to eat and drink.  Lobster, Lumpia, Lamb Burgers, Potato pancakes, Cheese curds, Fried Twinkies, Vegan delights, Sausages, Loaded Fries, Beer and even Pina Colada’s.

When I was there, one stage had a DJ and a  colorful skit, while the other stage played  spot on-in tune cover music.

 

In between the 2 stages were food booths along with many mini pop ups of T-Shirts, Jewelry, Sunglasses, various art projects along with some sponsors passing out pretty cool free gear and gadgets.  I scored a free pair of Sunnys along with a couple flashlights. And Bought a few pairs. Who can pass up, Buy ONE for $20, get TWO FREE?  Haha, yep got me good. But I gotta say I do look pretty fly in the Prado’s.

Some notable shirts included Psychologist with the ologist letters crossed out, the Brightly colored Lincoln shirts, Some nice Chicago shirts for $10, and a shirt with: I’m as Happy as a Duck with Bread boldly written across the front.

Did I mention Lemonade! OMG it was so tasty!! Lemonade has to be one of my favorite Summertime drinks and this was pretty amazing.

It was a very friendly group of fest attendees, not rowdy, very chill, with a nice mid western happy party vibe.  Music  was great, Journey & J Giles covers were heard from the bands. And the DJ played some Daft Punk, Chicago House along with some classic Dance tracks. The DJ music was sponsored by club Berlin, so it was pretty high calibre spinning.

The Belmont-Sheffield Music Festival happens Saturday and Sunday of Memorial Day Weekend. It rates 5 out of 5 stars. And Pro tip:  There’s a Liquor store next door and across the street is a CVS with lots of ice cold water and more cheap drinks. Lots of easy ways to pre party prior to going in our picking up something cold for the trip home on the El Train.

Here’s one of my favorite pictures that sums the party up in one image. I call it Happiness.

Sushi Fake-Out

The Vegan Sushi

Ahimi Nigiri Sushi

This picture of Sushi may look like an Ahi Nigiri, but it’s not!  It’s actually a tomato, along with sushi rice, a bit of seaweed and shoyu. Could of…and did FOOL ME.   Wow! Looks just like Ahi!

I have yet to try it.  But they say that the texture and flavor of the tomato are transformed through a special technique, providing a savory and meaty taste.  Five natural ingredients are added to the tomato to give it the special look, feel and taste.

It’s a vegan Nigiri.  It’s name is Ahimi, by Ocean Hugger Foods. Available now at Whole Foods.  Next time I go to Whole Foods, I’ll give it a try and let you know how it tastes.

Have you tried it?

See you on the Streetz!

Silent Auction

Did I say they had a Silent Auction? They did and I bid on a black Giorgio Armani T-Shirt valued at $675.  Got it for $69.  Still might sound like a lot for a plain black T, but it was fun to buy and the money goes to UCP.
