free: 7-Eleven Slurpee on 7/11
I’ve always said that with all the Scavenger Hunts that take place in DC, the highest scoring item should be finding a 7-Eleven with a Slurpee machine that has all flavors functioning properly–at the same time. Fat chance of that, but if you just can’t stay away from the stores that always smell the same no matter where you are1, today you can get a free 7.11 ounce sized Slurpee at participating stores.
While I am fortunate enough to have 5 stores within a 1-mile radius of my home, I don’t think I’ll partake in today’s deal. I admit to a Slurpee craving every now and again, but the sticky floors, the inconsistent flavors and the interesting aromas coming from the constantly rotating hot food area are enough to keep me away. Especially on a freebie day.
1 It’s a bit like the IHOP syrups, always the same no matter the place. For all we know, IHOP only has one booth that exists at an infinite number of quantum states.
