If that wasn’t enough reason to come out, there will also be a silent auction for a Joe Jacoby signed Redskins Jersey! The proceeds from the auction will go to a charity of Joe’s choice.

Our address is 1420 Spring Hill Rd, McLean, VA 22102. We look forward to seeing you.

With plenty of sides to pick at, we will be serving unlimited corn, potatoes, fries, and coleslaw as well.
