Free Slurpee Day is This Thursday At All El Paso 7-Elevens
This Thursday is July 11 — or 7/11 — and if you're a Slurpee enthusiast then you know what that means; party at the Slurpee machine!
To celebrate the chain's 92nd birthday, 7-Eleven will once again hold Free Slurpee Day and give away small cups of their delicious slushy treat from 11 a.m. until 7 p.m. -- or until the Slurpee machines run dry, whichever comes first.
93.1 KISS-FM has confirmed with the 7-Eleven district office that all 7-Eleven stores in El Paso will participate.
I wouldn't stand in a line for a half hour just to save $1.50 ... said no one in El Paso ever! Oh, and it will be hot again Thursday, so word to the wise: suck it down slowly or suffer the consequences.
