Everybody loves a circus.  Especially if it’s on the shores of beachland  in Santa Cruz, California.  The Polynesian circus has set up shop on the  historic beach boardwalk, and I went to go see the free 30 minute show  yesterday.  There was plenty of dancing girls, gymnasts, fire spinners,  shell blowers, the limbo man, and real honest to God Samoans in the  show.  It’s a fun event to go to if you’re around Santa Cruz through August.

Celebrate 7-Eleven’s Birthday with a Free Slurpee, 7-11-2011

What better way to cool down on a hot July day than with a Slurpee from 7-Eleven? Better yet a free Slurpee from 7-Eleven?

Today only, 7-Eleven is celebrating their 84th birthday and all customers get to help celebrate. While supplies last and limit one per customer, five million free 7.11 ounce Slurpees well be given away at participating 7-Elevens in the United States and Canada.

“Even without the five million free Slurpee drinks, July is the biggest month of the year for Slurpee sales,” said Jesus Delgado-Jenkins, 7-Eleven’s senior vice president of merchandising, marketing and logistics in a news release. “What better drink for the hottest month of the year.”
