Is There a Cherry Anniversary?

Galley Mom AMJCL calls in with a report that today is the 40th Anniversary of the Slurpee. Excellent news for all.

The Slurpee is a favorite of my youth, and was nearly always consumed as post-tennis or basketball refreshment, along with a bag of Smartfood. Oh, the joys of a growing up in New Jersey idyll.

Of course, you don't care about that. But you may care that 7-11 is serving up free Slurpees all day in celebration. Go. Enjoy. And if you can, mix the Cherry and Coke flavors, and pour some for your homey.

Even better, a 7/11 just opened up in Manhattan, after a 15-plus-years absence! 23 and Park, and more in the works!
