Though glamorous, Bernalwood is a small place. But we do not suffer here: We’ve got stunning views, amazing sushi, internationally recognized butchers, yummy piroshkis, hand-crafted cocktails… and all the amenities that befit a neighborhood of our haughty stature and global renown.
We’ve pretty much got it all… except for Slurpees.
Alas, there is currently no place for Bernalwoodians to go to get that distinctive Slurpee mix of semifrozen water, high-fructose corn syrup, and searing cranial pain. That will soon change, thanks to the kingpins at 7-Eleven, who have seen fit to endow us with a 7-Eleven store of our very own! (So long as we don’t mind sharing it with the Vassals of La Lengua.)
The new 7-Eleven will join our neighborhood on Mission Street at 30th. Apart from Slurpees, they will also sell inexpensive hot dogs, taquitos in several unholy flavors, and Big Gulp fountain drinks served in cups so large that many Bernal residents will be able to repurpose them for use as above-ground swimming pools. Woo-hoo!
