Lovin It! Revolt TV and McDonald's teamed up to show love to local artist across the United States (Dallas, Houston, New Orleans, Detroit, and Philadelphia) . In order for the artist to perform in their city they had to submit their work in a video to be chosen for this amazing opportunity. On June 23, 2015 The Local Love Tour stopped in Philly at the Theatre of The Living Arts (TLA) on South Street. The building was packed , DJ RL was cranking music for the crowd, and the good vibes of Philly love was definitely felt throughout the night. People were smiling for the Posey booth camera and enjoying the McDonald swag bag which contained Revolt TV T-shirts, McDonald's coupons and a McDonald's towel . The show was hosted by Philly's own Mina Say What and REVOLT TV host DJ Damage. Its so motivating and inspiring to see Damage do his thing and to know that his hard work in the city helped him to pursue dreams and be able to help the dreams of others. The show was live from beginning to end. Eno opened up the show with a cool performance. Aquil came to share his music with his supporters. Griffy brought Dakota Black and Melal out for a turned up set.Philly's own Freeway hit the stage and even brought out his artist Scholito. The crowd was vibing as Crowd Pleazers danced to music from Dj Swizzymack and Dj Tizz. The Local Love Tour was definitely going up on a Tuesday. Mont Brown and The Astronauts turned up the stage with Kevin One DR on the guitar as well as the rest of his band. Yes, I said band!! Mont Brown definitely kept the crowd focused. His band included a violin player, drummer, saxophonist, and multiple guitar players. Mont Brown also had his daughter and little bro touch the stage as well. After Damage took a group selfie for REVOLT TV with all the audience members PNB Rock, rocked out with performances of "On Fleek", " Oh Yeahh", and his Cosmic Kev freestyle. The ladies in the the TLA went crazy for him. The show ended with performances from Kur and Meek Mill's DreamChaser Records Omelly. As a McDonald's Mover and Shaker , I had a fun time at the show. It was good to see everyone having a fun time and enjoying The Local Love Tour. Mogul Shoutout to Diddy, REVOLT TV , and McDonald's for putting this together. Special love to Alicia Gentlie, OhYinks, Jennifer Walington, McDonald's and all of my beloved Movers and Shakers . Shoutout to Dj Damage for bringing The Local Love Tour back to his hometown. Much love to Power 99 and shoutout to Gillie Da Kid and the funny comedian Fresh 215 whom were also in the building

What’s shaking? The new Shakin' Flavor Fries at McDonalds. On August 4,2014 the item was surprisingly added to the McDonalds Philly menu. Don't you love tasty surprises ? Season fries known as “Shake Shake” have been popular in Asia for years . They debut in Hong Kong in 2005 and spread into other countries. The fries premiered in the U.S at Sacremento & St Louis McDonalds and now they are here in Philly. President & Region/Owner of Operations John Durante of Greater Philadelphia said “ Our customers love our classic French Fries , so we are so excited to offer them the option to fully customize this classic with the seasoning of their choice.” There are three seasonings: Garlic Parmesan, Spicy Buffalo and Zesty Ranch . Upon ordering Shakin' Flavor Fries, guest will recieve an additional bag and a seasoning bag of chosen flavor. Customers then can pour the seasoning into the bag along with their fries and shake it up as much as desired.
On August 24,2014 McDonalds celebrated their exclusive “ShakinPhilly” launch at the North Shore Beach Club. I attended the super-sized flavored DayLoad event and I had a great time. It was bursting with McDonald's lovers, North Shore Beach club members and Movers & Shakers. DJ Rich Kid & DJ Quiana Paris kept the party going with hot music and pumped up remixes. Everyone was smiling, dancing, swimming, posing for the McDonald's photo booth and having a ball bar or pool side . The “Shaking Flavor Fries” were definitely the star of ShakinPhilly. Shakers were shaking bags of fries and lovin it. So if you’re a Garlic Parmesan, Spicy Buffalo, or Zesty Ranch lover, there is definitely a seasoning for you. Senior Account Executive Alicia Gentile coordinated an awesome event. Jen Wallington, Yinka Adedji, and the entire McDonald's Philly crew were super friendly and definitely made sure everyone was smiling and enjoying themselves. The ShakinPhilly launch was a fantastic way to shake up what’s new and hot at McDonalds.
