It's only April, but it feels like June. Robert Dyer @ Bethesda Row to the rescue, with some new, icy drinks to cool off with in downtown Bethesda.

Dunkin' Donuts at Bethesda Row has 2 new iced coffees with Baskin Robbins ice cream flavors.

Enjoy a Mint Chocolate Chip or Butter Pecan iced coffee today on Bethesda Avenue.  And enjoy it with some trivia: Long before Haagen Dazs, Baskin Robbins was the king of major ice cream chains in Bethesda. Competing with Swensen's (which took a wrecking ball in the now-demolished Bethesda Square Shopping Center) and Gifford's, Baskin Robbins served up 31 flavors and ice cream cakes at 2 Bethesda locations: Arlington Road (wrecking ball again - it was in a strip shopping center where the Bethesda Row Giant stands today), and in the Westwood Shopping Center on Westbard Avenue.

My question to Dunkin' Donuts:  How about Peanut Butter and Chocolate or Baseball Nut as the next iced coffee flavor?

For a decidedly more adult beverage, head to Plaza del Sol on St. Elmo Avenue.

There you will find the Margarita Loca, which you can order frozen or on-the-rocks. Flavors include Strawberry and Lime.

Stay hydrated!
