I returned from my own lunch this afternoon to find several e-mails from readers and colleagues reminding me that today is "Customer Appreciation Day" at participating area Jimmy John's
. Until 3 p.m. you can get any of the chain's eight-inch sandwiches (menu items Nos. 1-6) for only $1.
The line at the Delmar Loop location was out the door when my colleague Chrissy Wilmes stopped by a short while ago. However, she tells me that, as befits Jimmy John's "freaky fast" mantra, the queue moved quickly.
