I’m failing to see any downsides on this one.

Via SFFunCheap comes the news of Free Slurpee Day.
On a drizzly day in the Godforsaken West Bay, a 7-11 is the Beacon of Culture amongst the grow- and cat- and halfway- houses:

“Monday, July 11th is Free Slurpee Day at almost every 7-Eleven in the country, but a few locations in the Bay Area are actually holding full on “7-Eleven Day” celebrations.
One 7-Eleven location in San Francisco (3400 Mission Street at 30th Street) hosts four hours of brainfreezing fun with not only free slurpees for all comers, but also fun competitions like Brain freeze contests (exactly what it sounds, who can slurp a slurpee the fastst), with prizes, a jump house with a slide, balloon artist, KYLD radio from noon to 2pm and a live mariachi band at 11am.
This event is free and open to the public. There’s also another free 7-Eleven Day celebration in Sunnyvale from 1p-5p.
Free Slurpee Day 2011 Celebrations
- What: Free Slurpees throughout the Bay Area can only mean one thing…that’s right, it’s 7-Eleven Day. To commemorate 7-Eleven’s 84th birthday on July 11, aka 7-Eleven Day, Bay Area 7-Eleven stores will show their love by offering free 7.11-ounce Slurpees and hosting a series of competitions, including 84-second timed Slurpee-drinking contests
- Why: Because 7-Eleven wants to say thank you to the Bay Area and invite y’all
- Where: Nearly 400 participating Bay Area stores will offer free Slurpees.
Two Bay Area stores will host big 7-Eleven Day celebrations at::
- 11 am – 3 pm: 3400 Mission Street (at 30th) in San Francisco
- 1 pm – 5 pm: 708 N. Fair Oak Ave in Sunnyvale
- When: Monday, June 11, 2011 – 7 am – 11 pm, while supplies last”
And here’s a stab at participating locations:
[This event turned out to be a huge success, with a bigger turnout than a recent effort in the Mission District. This one's all over but I'll post about the next one when it happens.*]

*Assuming I survive the Great San Francisco Blog War of 2011.
Are you just about to get married? If so, there appears to be no downside entering the 2010 San Francisco Dream Wedding Giveaway. And if you win, you’ll be getting hitched on May 14, 2010, whether you like it or not!
All this assumes that you’re not bashful talking about your fiance (or fiancee) and that you don’t mind being exposed to a wedding-related sales pitch or two. After all, you only get married one time (or eight (!) times, something in that area).
And just for fun, read the FAQ. Apparently, ingrates, people who haven’t even won yet, write in with less-than-gracious inquiries:
Q} – I already paid deposits to other vendors for the wedding I have been planning on my own. Can I get those deposits back?
Q} I can’t afford to take time off work. If I am the winner, will I be compensated for my time?
Q} Can we cancel the wedding if we are the winners?
(Can you imagine? I mean, really, mink coats and no manners, right ladies?)
Anyway, here are the deets. The contest starts August 4, 2009, at exactly 7:55 AM Pacific Standard Time.
You can’t win if you don’t play! And Our Schools Win Too!*
