How good is our luck that 7-Eleven's birthdate happens on July 11, when dry mouths crave the convenience store's signature beverage, the Slurpee? So, so good, because the date means free 7.11-ounce Slurpees for all.
Wednesday marks the chain's 85th birthday, and to celebrate, swing into a participating store by 7 p.m. With nearly 20 flavors of the frozen drink to choose from -- blue lightning blast, Coca-Cola, Fanta banana -- select your favorite and then have that tongue-color comparison contest.
Long Island has more than two dozen locations. To find the store closest to you: 7-eleven.com.
