Tastebuds is a unique Best Buddies Maryland tasting event that features a select group of Baltimore area favorite restaurants serving signature dishes as they team up with a buddy pair, who serve as the “sous chefs” for the evening. The event won’t look exactly the same as in years past because of social distancing, but it will be as close as we can get it—with a fun twist!
Tastebuds with a Twist will give guests the option to either make it a night the whole family can enjoy (drive-in movie style), or a relaxing night in for two with adult beverages. Either way, guests will still be able to enjoy delicious food, bid in a fabulous silent auction, and hear how Best Buddies is transforming our communities—all at a safe distance.
This “Party with a Purpose” helps fund our mission of friendships, jobs and leadership development for people with intellectual and developmental disabilities throughout Maryland.

About TasteBuds at Home
Our team is closely monitoring and evaluating the situation around the Coronavirus (COVID-19). We want to ensure you that we are taking all necessary measures to protect the health and well-being of our Tastebuds with a Twist participants. Best Buddies will follow the guidelines of the CDC and local/state government officials with the actions we take for each event. We are 100% committed to the safety of our community.
As we venture into uncharted territory with COVID-19, our friends with disabilities might feel more isolated than ever. Together, we must reaffirm the importance of creating an inclusive world that supports people of all abilities to be connected to friends, jobs, leadership, and inclusive living opportunities. There has never been a better time than now for Best Buddies to embrace inclusion. The Best Buddies Team is currently assessing event protocol for the Tastebuds with a Twist and plans for scenarios in which social distancing practices are set in motion. As soon as we can, we’ll be sharing that with you. As always, thank you for your support of the Best Buddies mission.
We are the world’s largest non-profit organization dedicated to ending the social, physical and economic isolation of the 200 million people with intellectual and developmental disabilities. Learn more at bestbuddies.org/maryland.
