According to a company press release, the event will take place at 7-Eleven locations around the nation on Saturday, April 11 from 11 a.m to 7 p.m. That's just enough hours in the day to see how many items people can get away with calling a "cup."
For something to count as a "cup," 7-Eleven said patrons can pretty much bring in whatever they want, as long as it's sanitary, leak-proof, of a definite shape and fits within a 10-inch cutout provided in the store. 7-Eleven suggests bringing "sand buckets, tea kettles and trophies," which you are free to fill up for $1.49 per cup.
In light of this special day, we would also like to remind 7-Eleven to invite Beyoncé to perform her "7/11" tribute to Slurpees:
Here's how Canada did it. Let's one-up our neighbors to the north:
Slurpee "bring your own cup" day at #7eleven. 1.5 dollars only to fill up your own "cup", which can be anything that can hold liquid. So here is our interpretation of "cup", a 9 liter plastic box! We mixed together 6 different flavours, enough #slurpee until the baby 🚼 is born! Slurpee, anybody? PS: slurpee is flavoured ice crush. Our favourite flavour is the cappuccino! #BringYourOwnCup #BringYourOwnCupDay #BYOC
