Free Slurpees (and an iPad?) at 7-11 Grand Opening Party
At Midtown Lunch we’re not supposed to like things like 7-Eleven (unless they’re turned into Kwik E Mart’s of course.) For the most part, it’s really just a shinier corner bodega that happens to be a worldwide chain. Their pre-wrapped sandwiches evoke the same reactions as Walgreen sandwiches… but the one redeeming quality of 7-Eleven is their slurpees. Nothing like fluorescent icy drinks to alter my perception of good and evil. Also, there is nothing like free slurpees!
The new 7-Eleven on 8th ave and 37th street has been open for a couple of weeks now, but they’re doing a Grand Opening celebration today. According to a poster hanging in their front window there will be 300 free ‘gift bags’ and there will be free slurpees. The last time the 7-Eleven on 42nd did free slurpees, they only did 2oz cups so your mileage may vary on this. Still, there’s free samples of 7-Eleven food and you could win a free iPad. At this point, 7-Elevens are still a novelty for NYC, and freebies are always good. It goes down today from 5pm to 7pm, so slurpee loving freeloaders- engage!
