33,000 free slushies will be up for grabs on Friday
Tomorrow, July 11, is 7-Eleven’s quasi-champagne birthday—i.e. the eleventh day of the seventh month of the year—and, once again, 7-Eleven shops across Canada will be celebrating the auspicious date by giving away small portions of fluorescent slush. Between 11 a.m. and 7 p.m. Toronto-area shops will be gifting small Slurpees to the first 33,000 comers (that adds up to 11,715 litres of Slurpee, or approximately 52 bathtubs’ worth). There’s also a contest component to this year’s giveaway, with a big prize for whoever takes the best selfie of their “Slurpee run” and posts it on the 7-Eleven Canada Facebook page. And don’t worry, the prize isn’t something boring like money or a dumb trip—instead, it’s even more free Slurpees (711, to be precise). For anyone hoping to make multiple runs, here are all of Toronto’s 7-Elevens on a map.
