During our epic taste-test of Phrosties, one of our guinea pigs told the world to “try this psycho juice while it’s still ‘legal.'” How prescient!

A 7-Eleven opens once every three hours, according to Scott Teachenor, market manager for 150 of them around the city and Long Island. “We’re the largest retailer in the world,” he told residents of the Seward Park Housing Co-Op last night. “I’m kinda proud of that.”
