Memorial Day is the unofficial kickoff to summer, which means it’s time to aggressively start drinking Slurpees. From now until Memorial Day, a medium Slurpee from 7-Eleven is only 49¢.
I don’t want to hear from you California kids or Florida old folks. I know it’s always summer for you. But for those of us living above the Mason-Dixon Line, Memorial Day Weekend is huge for us. Softball starts, pools open, and beach bars start serving. We’ve been lacking in frozen drinks for eight months, and we’re going to drink that delicious slush straight from the tap until our stomachs explode.
You can RSVP to “Slurpee Days” on Facebook if you want, but there’s really no reason. Just show up, fill up that cup with 75% Coke Slurpee and and 25% Cherry Slurpee, drink some, then fill it back up to the top with rum. Welcome to summer.
