Picking McNabb’s Performance

Our winner’s a long-time McNabb lover—who is opening up a new food truck at the end of the month

Anna Leis at Donovan McNabb's first regular-season game with the Redskins.

It's always nice to make someone's day. And when Washingtonian talked to Anna Leis to let her know she'd won our pick-'em contest and the jersey Redskins quarterback Donovan McNabb wore on the cover of our September issue the long-term McNabb fan told us that we had. "I love him so much," Leis, who owns a McNabb Eagles jersey, too. "I adore him." True to her fandom, Leis saw McNabb play in both the preseason and yesterday's game, and says she makes it to games "as often as possible"—she's on the waiting list for season tickets.

But when she can't get to the stadium, the Shirlington resident likes watching games at Bungalow Billiards & Brew Co. And Leis will soon be more than a customer on the Washington restaurant and bar scene. She and her husband Shawn are launching a new food truck, DC Empanadas, offering choices like the June Cleaver (ground sirloin, potatoes, peas and carrots) and the Taj Mahal (chicken tikka) at the end of September.
