Valentine’s Day gets a little love

Yay, I am showered in stuffed love!

Valentine’s Day is one of my favorite holidays. I gladly give into all the gimmicks, from the Hallmark cards to boxed chocolates (which never really taste that good).  Some folks are disdainful towards advertisers telling them that today they must tell their friends, family or significant other how much they love and care for them.  For this very reason, they choose to not celebrate today. Perhaps it’s my childlike nature, but I love the ridiculous things that I find on shelves when I’m shopping.  What’s not to like about a giant stuffed frog that sings “Love Me Tender”?  There’s nothing wrong with an oversized card illustrating a cheesy-looking bee that says, “Bee Mine” or a pepperoni pizza shaped into a heart from Papa John’s (yes, this is a shout-out). They make me laugh and smile!  At the end of the day, couldn’t we all use a little bit of that? So thank you advertising, for helping keep Valentine’s Day alive and adding some love to my day.

For me!!!??? Yes, you should have.

Papa John's


Papa John’s Pizza in Houston has donated 1,716 cases of delicious pasta to the Houston Food Bank, enough to serve 51,480 people just in time for the holidays. The pasta was delivered to the Houston Food Bank on Friday, November 20, and will immediately be distributed to hunger relief agencies that provide food for men, women and children in the Greater Houston Area.

“When we at Papa John’s heard the Houston Food Bank needed help this holiday season, we wanted to help, but in a big way,” said Keith Sullins, President of local Papa John’s Houston locations. “No one should go hungry over Thanksgiving, and this donation is one way that we can make a difference. This is our holiday gift to those who may need a helping hand during these difficult times.”

Recent studies show that the need for food assistance is great in the greater Houston area. Each day, 53,000 people go hungry, 3,600 of them children. Texas has the second highest rate of food insecurity in the nation. Food insecurity means that a household’s access to adequate food is limited by a lack of money and other resources.

“The agencies that the Houston Food Bank serves report a 43-percent increase in families requesting food assistance in the past year,” said Brian Greene, president/CEO of the Houston Food Bank, “and this significant increase in the rate of daily hunger reinforces the need to expand the scope of food distribution to our community. This donation from Papa John’s comes at a time of year when most people celebrate the Thanksgiving holiday with a table overflowing with food, but there are many in our community who aren’t so fortunate.”

Papa John's


Twenty-five years ago, “Papa” John Schnatter sold his beloved ’72 Z28 Camaro to fund his other passion: delivering a superior-quality pizza to the residents of his hometown.

That commitment to “Better Ingredients. Better Pizza.” can be seen and felt every day in all 3,400 Papa John’s restaurants worldwide. The ’72 Z28 Camaro? Well, that’s a different story. It hasn’t been seen since 1984. So Schnatter is offering a $25,000 reward for the person who can point him in the direction of the car that started it all.

This Friday – as part of his nationwide Road Trip – Papa John will driving a replica ’72 Z28 Camaro through Houston to spread the word about his search and provide clues about his original car, in the hopes that someone can tell him where it is…and receive $25,000 in return.

While in Houston, John will have lunch with Houstonians downtown with proceeds benefitting the Readers are Leaders Foundation and deliver pizzas to a neighborhood block party in Spring, TX.

The entire time, Papa John will be joined by two lucky intern “sidekicks,” who will be chronicling their stop in Houston via photos, videos, blogs and tweets at
