Want to get your brain freeze on? Since today is 7/11, the popular convenience chain of the same name is offering free Slurpees!
In what has quickly become an annual event, 7-Eleven stores give away one free Slurpee per customer on July 11 between the hours of 11 a.m. and 7 p.m.
This year, the company expects to give away roughly 7 million Slurpees!!

The theme of the giveaway is called the 7-Eleven Day Dance Party… and believe it or not, there’s even a special Slurpee dance:
(Slurpee dance or Slurpee acid trip? You be the judge.)
Fun fact: Do you know how the 7-Eleven name came about? According to the company website, the stores were originally called Tote’m (because shoppers could tote their groceries away). The name was changed in 1946 to reflect the new, extended hours the stores were open – from 7 a.m. to 11 p.m.
Are you planning to score a free Slurpee today?
