Texts From Last Night (TFLN) was founded in February 2009 by two friends for reasons that may or may not include: the tendency to press send more easily as the night turns to morning, friends' social habits, disgraced government officials, exes, law school, closing down bars and leaving tabs open, general debauchery and/or a common disgust for all the negativity surrounding the 'sexting' phenomenon.  


My personal favorite texts from last night are:


(248): Guess who got arrested for public drunkiness, and called jimmy johns for the entire station last night instead of someone to bail me out? The cop that arrested me drove me home. Win.


(708): Yea i traded my bed for half a bag of jimmy johns jalepno chips, am I proud of it no, Am I happy I did it? Yes 

(913): Good thing you left when you did - ended up getting banned from jimmy johns.

(734): If my nicknames are based on what I throw up, you can call me Jimmy Johns

(269): did you hook up austin?

(248): No! he threw up in my bathroom, made me wake up and order him jimmy johns, beat my roommate with a macaroni and cheese box, and then passed out with her in her bed


What's better than texts from last night? 

Ordering your text from last night on a T-Shirt. Dig it!

Are you the Mayor of Jimmy John's?


The Game:
Think 50% friend-finder, 30% social city guide, and 20% nightlife game, and you have Foursquare - The next big thing in social media.

The Goal: Get points for "checking in" to any restaurant on your mobile phone. If you check-in from the same place more times than anyone else you are deemed mayor of that location. What are the points good for? Nothing but bragging rights. If I were the Mayor of Jimmy John's I'd brag about it too!


So I want to know, how many JJ Freakers are currently the Mayor of Jimmy John's? And if you're not, what's stopping you? 

8 Great Jimmy John's Tailgate Foods



The match-up we've all been waiting for has finally arrived. The No. 2 BCS-ranked Texas Longhorns vs. the No. 1 BCS-ranked Alabama Crimson Tide will compete for the national title TONIGHT! posted an article "8 Great Tailgate Foods". After all, football and food go hand-in-hand. The article listed your typical tailgating food - chili, wings, potato salad, etc. Sounds great, right? Until you realize you have to make everything from scratch! Each food listed was followed by an in-depth recipe. I'm talking go to the store, buy all of the ingredients, go back home, slave away in the kitchen and hopefully have the food ready before the game starts! 


I put together my own list for 8 Great Jimmy John's Tailgate Foods. 

It's freaky fast, fresh and tasty and delivered! 



  1. Party Platter - 15 or 30 piece platters. Mix and match. Pick any sub mix and we will do the rest.

  2. Box lunches - Your choice, any sub or club, choice of chips, giant cookie & pickle spear in a perfect box, easy to carry, easy to use.

  3. The JJ Gargantuan - It's huge enough to feed the hungriest of all humans! Tons of salami, ham, capicola, roast beef, turkey and provolone, jammed into our homemade French bread then smothered with onions, mayo, lettuce, tomato and our homemade Italian dressing!

  4. Giant Club Sandwich - #7 - #17 - Twice the meat or cheese for those bigger appetites. Try it on fresh baked thick sliced 7 grain bread or the famous homemade French bread!

  5. Sub Sandwich - #1 - #6 and don't forget the JJBLT - You can't go wrong with 8" of homemade French bread, fresh veggies and the finest meats and cheese you can buy!

  6. The Slim - For those who like things simple, the Slim is as simple as it gets. Any sub minus the veggies and sauce.

  7. The Unwich - For those going low-carb this New Year, get the same ingredients as a sub or club in a lettuce wrap.

  8. Gourmet Cookies - Gotta have dessert! Chocolate Chunk or Oatmeal Raisin Jimmy Cookies by the dozen!


Now who's ready for some football?!
