From a press release:

7-Eleven, Inc., the company that invented convenience retailing 84 years ago in Dallas, Texas, invites customers to celebrate its birthday this coming Monday with a free 7.11-ounce frozen Slurpee drink. Participating 7-Eleven stores across the U.S. and Canada will serve up 5 million free 7.11-ounce Slurpee frozen carbonated beverages this day while supplies last.

And for those near H St, NE there is a special event at 957 H St, NE from 2-4pm:

“Free 7.11-oz Slurpees, series of competitions including timed Slurpee-drinking contest, 7-Eleven-themed challenges, and more!”

While I like free, I still remain a devotee of the slush puppie

    Can I get mine with Rum?

    I am quite addicted to the slurpee; they may as well be handing out free heroin. Gotta convince the husband to come with me after work.

    “Thank you. Come again!”

    Happy Kwik-E-Mart Day.

    My sisters and I used to take the public bus home from Catholic grade school (from near Ballston metro to near Rosslyn metro) for 25 cents. Around 3rd grade, we started walking (like 2 miles!) and spending the bus fare on Slurpees instead. I remember the glorious smack of cool upon walking into 7-11 and the luscious swirl piling into my cup, the scrunch of that spoony-straw plunging through the frosty crust and the desperately sad way the cup grew soft and soggy in my hand as we walked the long rest of the way home.

    Then mean mom found out and made us walk home anyway but took away the bus fare – no more slurpees.

      Booooo on mom. You were being wise and learning great lessons! Figuring out what you wanted based on what you had available, using money for what you wanted by giving up something else, getting excercise, sibling bonding over a 2+ mile walk….. acch.

      Go get your free slurpee and relive those memories!

        Thanks I suppose – but you are so dense and oblivious to the real point I have to laugh. No 9 year old is wise, or interested in exercise and sibling bonding! It was Slurpee lust – pure and simple. And sadly damaged moms were ordinary back then – stop watching Oprah! A two-mile walk is a very first-world problem – and not so strange in 1970.

          Well I’ll give you the no shit sherlock award or the panites in a bunch award. Or both.

          You may not have noticed the other benefits at nine but your mom shoulda.

          But hell you are oblivious now… so I guess those frozen brain cells never unfroze.

          I promise never to be kind to you again.

          That there is a real any world problem.

          Oh goodness, you’re joker aren’t you? Gotta be. Damn.

    The 7-11 on Columbia and 14th put up a suspicious “out of order” sign on their seemingly working slurpee machines. not cool 7-11.

    Damn I missed this. I have a whole new found respect for PoP. Slush puppies were top dog. hmm i guess pun intended.

    I think Slush puppies were better because the ice wasn’t crushed into oblivion so you never had to worry about that last 1/3 of stuff in the cup that won’t come out like in a slurpie.
