What is arguably one of the best days of the year for fans of 7-Eleven's Slurpees is upon us and we couldn't be more excited. The special "BYOC" or "Bring Your Own Cup" returns to participating 7-Eleven locations this coming Friday and Saturday.

There are a couple of rules before you decide to show up at 7-Eleven with your own cup. The Slurpee vessel must be able to fit through a 10-inch hole, needs to be safe for food, should be water tight, and only one cup per person.

Plus, filling up your cup will only cost you $1.50. The special runs on Friday, May 19 from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. and Saturday, May 20 from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m.

We found this gentleman at the 7-Elven at 9 Mile and Hilton on BYOC day with a bottle of patron filled up with Slurpee. It's time to get creative, folks!
