Free In NYC: Ice Cold Slushes From Kelvin Slush Truck

By Perry, the voice behind New York Street Food

NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) -- Kelvin Natural Slush, the truck serving up ice cold "slush" drinks, is doling out the goods for free on Tuesday.

The truck is named after the Kelvin temperature scale, which was named after physicist Lord Kelvin - born June 26, 1824.

You might remember from high school science that "absolute zero" (the theoretical temperature at which all molecular motion ceases) is defined as 0 K on the Kelvin scale and −273° on the Celsius scale (and −460° on the Fahrenheit scale).

So to celebrate Lord Kelvin's birthday this Tuesday, June 26, the truck will be giving away a free slush to the first 273 people that visit their big blue slush truck or the Ice Cube Stand and say "Happy Birthday Lord Kelvin!!"

On Tuesday, June 26th, all you have to do is follow Kelvin Slush on Twitter here or on our Mobile Munchies Twitter feed, or call the Slush Phone (646-200-5083) to find out where the truck will be parked.

You can also visit the Ice Cube at Little Red Square (Bleecker St. and 6th Ave.).
