Who'd have guessed that the debut of a new 7-Eleven would be such a grand event? This Friday's opening of the new convenience store in Compton will occasion the kind of fanfare normally reserved for oh, I don't know, a celebrity-named community center or a new hospital wing. In addition to an appearance by the Compton Fire Department, a live dee-jay and face painting for kids, the Laker Girls will be on hand to sign autographs and pose for photos. Sample 7-Eleven's new baked pizzas and try out this month's Slurpee flavor while dreaming of the start of the Laker season, which begins October 27th at the Staples Center against the Clippers.
