UPDATED! See complete list of kick-off event locations below.
Zynga and 7-Eleven's partnership is easily the largest promotion in Facebook gaming history. 7-Eleven will have specially branded FarmVille, YoVille and Mafia Wars snacks with a special code that can be redeemed for exclusive in-game items. Buy a Slurpee with a giant FarmVille photo on it, snag the code from the bottom and redeem it at buyearnplay.com for a limited edition Fun Slide that can be placed on your virtual farm.
The two companies have decided to kick off this promotion on June 1, with kick-off parties -- called Virtual Goes Reality -- in six cities, including Los Angeles. The only real details we know about these events is that 'games and prizes will be given away, so if you're a FarmVille/Mafia Wars/YoVille gaming junkie, this is one event you won't want to miss.
For those of you in LA, head to this 7-Eleven on June 1, between 4-7 p.m.:
