Your chance to stand in line outside a 7-Eleven to meet Shaun White today


So Gold-Medal-winning snowboarder Shaun White will be at the 7-Eleven today at noon on IHOP Way as part of a promotion for his new flavor of gum — Mintacular ...


According to the flyer the gum dude handed me this morning... "Shaun White and Stride will ... completely take over this 7-Eleven" which "will be transformed into a Stride super store, carrying only Stride's two Shaun White flavors ..." According to the Times, 7-Eleven will also serve a batch of Mintacular-flavored Slurpees. (Read Andrew Adam Newman's article here.)

Be kind of cool if the left the 7-Eleven this way permanently. We need a good two-flavor gum store around here.

I walk past this 7-11 twice a day going to work...it's usually pretty empty...I was hoping it would stay THAT way.

LvV said...

Yeah, esquared, it looks like ... Axl Rose?

I just passed this and a good number of people are indeed loitering out there. I like Shaun White well enough, but I wouldn't sit on 14th waiting for him. Call me when it's Nyjah Huston!

Should be pretty easy to take over a store nobody wants.

I'd like to see this two-flavor gum store go before CB3 and apply for a sidewalk chewing permit, lol.

Yeah, what a sellout. Making all that money by lending his name to products, traveling the world, snowboarding as a job. Yeah, sounds as great as your paper filing job for $20k a year.
