Grab Your Biggest Growler— It’s Bring Your Own Cup Day At 7-Eleven



It’s Bring Your Own Cup Day, a national celebration of artificial flavoring, high-fructose corn syrup, and loss leaders made possible by the generous folks at 7-Eleven. For $1.50, you can walk into any participating location on August 18th and 19th with essentially any container in tow and fill it to the brim with whatever flavor Slurpee your heart desires.

If you’re looking to participate this year, it’s worth noting there are a few rules. The first— and most important— is that your “cup” has to be able to fit through a 10-inch wide hole in a cardboard cutout placed inside each 7-Eleven. We’re under the impression any inflatable pool you might bring must be filled with air before you attempt to pass the test.

While most 7-Eleven locations are open 24 hours a day, you can only fill your own cup from 11 AM to 7 PM. It should go without saying that all vessels must be watertight and safe for food, but there have apparently been instances in the past that made it necessary to make that an explicit stipulation. You can also only bring one cup per person, so follow the example of Indiana Jones in The Last Crusade and choose wisely.

Here are some of the best examples from this year and beyond.
