National 7-11 Day

This one is easy and a little silly. July 11 is 7-11 day. 7/11? Get it?

I don’t have much to say about it except that 7-11 has invaded and is beginning to colonize New York City. Just a decade ago we were quirky with little locally owned stores but are now being overrun by chains and franchises. Better in a way as they are cleaner and more predictable. Worse as we lose our quirkiness and bodega cats. I’ve yet to see a 7-11 cat patrolling the stores. Enjoy your Slurpee!
