HOH’s One-Minute Recess: The Slurpees Are Coming

The 7-Eleven guys are really taking advantage of this whole “Slurpee Summit” thing — and that means getting a Slurpee on Capitol Hill could be a whole lot easier. Shortly after President Barack Obama said he was considering serving the slushy drink at an upcoming meeting with would-be Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio), 7-Eleven announced plans to send a Slurpee truck from Dallas to Washington, D.C., with the hope of catering the meeting.

The truck, which is slated to leave Dallas on Friday afternoon and arrive on Capitol Hill on Nov. 18, will feature a new flavor, “nonpartisan.” The drink is equal parts blue and red Slurpee. No word on whether it will feature a splash of Boehner’s beloved merlot.

In addition to sending a truck to the District, the convenience store is also offering to install Slurpee machines in both the White House and Boehner’s Capitol Hill office so the leaders of the free world can enjoy the drink morning, noon and night.
