Slurpee.jpgAlthough the weather stays cloudy and the wind keeps blowing, San Francisco has no shortage of summertime events. Try to ignore the rainy skies and pretend you’re soaking up the sun on a Southern California beach, while you head to these cooling events!

7-Elevens across the globe are giving away free slurpees all day long! But SF does it best… the 3400 Mission Street location will be hosting four hours of brainfreezing fun with not only free slurpees for all comers, but also fun competitions like Brain Freeze contests with prizes, a jump house with slide, balloon artist, KYLD radio from noon to 2pm and a live mariachi band at 11am!

What: Free Slurpee Day
When: Monday, July 11th, 7am to 11pm (or until supplies run out)
Where: All 7-Eleven Locations
Cost: FREE

Once you’ve gotten your fill of brain freezes and little kid summertime fun (and if you still have room in your bladder), head over to 15 Romolo for a cocktail contest!

Watch some of the Bay Area’s most talented mixologists shake up spirits at Art in the Age‘s first-ever San Francisco Root & Snap Cocktail Competition.

The competition will have these mixologists concocting original artisan cocktails, which you can sample for $4 each, along with some free hors d’oeuvres. Each drink will be evaluated on aroma, taste, originality, and presentation by a panel of judges.

The event is free admission and open to public, but RSVP by sending an email to laura@artintheage.cos.

What: Cocktail Contest and Free Hors d’Oeuvres
Where: 15 Romolo
