March Martini Madness is BACK this year at Bethesda Row. The top restaurants in the area are competing for the chance to be crowned "Best Row-tini," but we call it a great opportunity to do a martini crawl. It's also an excuse to take advantage of the area's March shopping deals.

After sipping around, vote on Facebook for the best Row-tini once a day. You can also enter to win a $500 dining certificate for up to ten guests from one of the participating restaurants at The winner will be emailed directly and announced on Facebook by April 5, 2013.

Participating restaurants:

Lebanese Taverna’s Row Your Mawze | 7141 Arlington Road [Last Year's Winner!]

Mon Ami Gabi’s The Old Peach Basket | 7239 Woodmont Avenue

Redwood’s Constantino’s Daquiri #4 | 7121 Bethesda Lane
