Cool down with a tra­di­tional sum­mer treat from 7-Eleven. The ubiq­ui­tous con­ve­nience store is cel­e­brat­ing its 90th birth­day by giv­ing ev­ery­one a free small Slurpee on July 11 (07/11 – get it?) from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. Even with a limit of one per cus­tomer, many Slurpee ma­chines drain quickly, so plan ac­cord­ingly. Con­sider this the per­fect op­por­tu­nity to taste test the lim­ited-time Cot­ton Candy fla­vor. With so many lo­ca­tions, find­ing a 7-Eleven should be easy. The brain freeze is free, too. 7-eleven.com/slurpee

COW BELL

Those in the moo’d for a tasty freebie should stop by Chick-fil-A for its an­nual Cow Ap­pre­ci­a­tion Day. On July 11, any­one wear­ing any­thing cow-like, such as a cow-spot­ted ac­ces­sory, will re­ceive a free entrée. Full head-to-hoof cow at­tire is strictly op­tional, but if you want to go all Guernsey we won’t stop you. Cus­tomers can choose an entrée, in­clud­ing break­fast, sand­wiches or nuggets. At some stores, thirsty bovines can opt for a small shake, iced cof­fee or frosted le­mon­ade in­stead of an entrée. Kids dressed like a cow re­ceive a free Kid’s Meal. The deal is avail­able from open­ing (6 a.m. at most lo­ca­tions) to 7 p.m. chick-fil-a.com/
