Summertime and all the Slurpees today are delicious and FREE: it’s 7/11 and that means 7 ELEVEN stores started giving away these cold drinks from 11A until 7P and that’s how they celebrate their nationwide store chain's anniversary.

The 7 ELEVEN City Island Images visited was located near the end of the #6 New York City Subway line. This store was giving away a few hundred an hour and their bar tender, who at first did not want his photo taken told City Island Images "I expect to serve hundreds more of these delicious Slurpees."

It’s an extra special day for 7-11 as the company spokesman told us they are marking 83 years in business. Happy birthday, 7 ELEVEN. This momentous birthday isn’t the only reason for their giveaway, this has become an annual tradition for the convenience store chain to recognize its namesake date, Jully 11th, by giving away cold and deliciously Free Slurpees.

Speaking of delicious, 25 year old Dainara Bermudez from the Bronx says she is a psychology major at John Jay College. She told us how much she enjoyed her delicious Pina Colada slurpee and while she was drinking it she stopped just long enough to swallow and tell us, "I love it"

46 year old Bob Toro is a tobacco salesman. He told City Island Images, " If it's free, it's for me"

So, get over to your local 7-Eleven for a little slushy drink in the form of a 7.11-ounce Slurpee. And remember, this special deal is only available from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. and until supplies run out.
