Free Slurpees at 7-Eleven on Saturday
It's free Slurpee day at 7-Eleven on 7/11. The chain of convenience stores is celebrating its 82nd birthday by offering free Slurpees throughout the day at many of its locations. (Docstoc has a handy list of participating stores in Los Angeles, Orange, Ventura and Riverside counties.)
If one neon-colored, highly sweetened, semi-frozen drink isn't enough, show up on Friday night at the North Hollywood 7-Eleven on Vineland Avenue and Vanowen Street, where the first 100 die-hard fans will receive a one-year supply of Slurpees. (Officially, that means one Slurpee per week for one year.) Talk about brain freeze.
