March Martini Madness Comes To Bethesda Row

The marketing people at Federal Realty’s Bethesda Row are bringing back March Martini Madness, a contest between 10 restaurants on the Row that will compete for the honor of best “Bethesda Row-tini.”

Each restaurant is offering happy hour prices on its special martini throughout the month and wine bar Vino Volo will take part with its own version, called “Malbec Madness.”

Participants can vote for their favorite martini on Facebook and sign up to win a dinner for 10 at one of the restaurants.

The restaurants and offerings are after the jump.
