Taste of the Town 2016

See you in 2017!

Taste of the Town is the Foundation for BCPL's premier annual fundraiser event.

Get a taste of Baltimore County by sampling food and Bookcoverdrink from local restaurants, caterers, wineries and breweries, enjoy live music and bid on an exciting and eclectic assortment of items in a silent auction. 2016's silent auction featured items worth over $16,000.

2016's event was hosted by lifelong Marylanders, Gregory and Nicole Priebe, the "alcohologists" behind A History of Drinking, the cocktail blog that pairs random and often obscure historical events with appropriate cocktails, and authors of Forgotten Maryland Cocktails: A History of Drinking in the Free State. Active in the national and online cocktail communities since 2009, they have created custom cocktails for Hiram Walker, Crown Royal and many other brands. Gregory and Nicole signed copies of their book Forgotten Maryland Cocktails.
