Location: 7-Eleven (Chelsea)
Event: 7-Eleven Day
Food: Wild Cherry Slurpee
In it's annual effort to prove that the world still has some good in it, 7-Eleven gives away free Slurpees on July 11. It is also the prime example of my eagerness to eat things I don't like just because they're free. Not paying makes everything taste better so I happily drank my wild cherry sugar juice.

Location: Essex Street Market (LES)
Event: The New Old-Schoolers: Reviving Traditional Jewish Foods
Food: Pickles and bagel
Access to pickles and bagels is probably a key driver in my decision to stay in this city I can't afford. Essex Street Market hosted an event in honor of traditional Jewish foods which is a pretty good way to get my attention. I would've stayed for the main event, but there were no seats left and my awkwardness would hit a new peak if I had to stand by myself for an hour.
