Tuesday is National Brain Freeze Day — or at least that's what it should be called when there will be lines out the door at 7-Eleven convenience stores to get a free Slurpee to celebrate the chain's birthday on 7/11.

Customers can get a free small Slurpee at any 7-Eleven location from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. while supplies last. Some stores will also be carrying selfie swag for the new Slurpee chrome dome lids and chrome dome cups. Anyone who gets it is asked to post a selfie on social media with #Slurpfies and tag @7Eleven.

And if you are really a fan of the frozen sugary drink, customers who buy at least seven Slurpees from July 12-18 will get 11 Slurpees for free. You have to download the free 7-Eleven app, buy seven Slurpees during that time period, have the clerk scan the bar code on the app and you'll be awarded 11 Slurpees.

We just think it's nice that 7-Eleven stores have their signature Slurpee Day in the middle of a blistering hot summer. The chain is celebrating its 90th year, founded in 1927.

  3. Restaurant review: Food and beer pair nicely at the Eatery at Brew Bus Terminal and Brewery

    Food & Dining

    TAMPA - Tampa Bay's craft beer scene is perennially in flux. New breweries open, others close or get scooped up by bigger breweries, some reinvent themselves so they can sell beer off site, and still others build on kitchens and add food to give enthusiasts another reason to sit tight.

    A Passion of the Heights hibiscus wheat ale is displayed at The Brew Bus in Tampa, Fla., on Wednesday, Jul 19, 2017.  The Brew Bus Terminal, which houses a microbrewery and tasting room and serves as a hub for bus tours to local breweries, has opened an on-site kitchen called the Eatery. With the opening of the new casual dining concept, the brewery joins the ranks of microbreweries across the country that have asked that question: "What goes with beer? Hey, how about food?"
