To commemorate its 2nd decade, ‘Taste Of Key West’ invites community restaurateurs, if they haven’t, to participate and offers heartfelt thanks to the over 50 who annually repeat that commitment at Truman Waterfront.


“Staging ‘Taste of Key West’ would be unthinkable without our corps of volunteers…but, let’s face it, it would be impossible without the restaurants, cafes, bakeries and food shops who form the horseshoe of palate pleasers at Truman Waterfront,” says Jeremy Wilkerson, Director of Community Affairs for AIDS Help, the Agency that benefits from the evening.


“Every fork lifted, every plate cleared, is due to the generosity of donating food service owners and managers on this island,” adds Scott Pridgen, Executive Director. “For twenty years we’ve been astounded by the people who help make this evening so gratifying, from free trolley shuttles the winery pours. And the Gulf and ocean views sure doesn’t hurt.”


Committing to providing the public both local favorites and menu innovations begins with a call to Wilkerson. He’ll explain the advance timeline, how the day itself works and how the Agency assists to ensure and direct a seamless flow of hungry, thirsty patrons.


“Beyond the outcome for the Agency and its Mission, many comment on how it can help position a new business and what it specializes in, or just broaden the clientele horizon for an existing one,” he remarks. “A single bite can result in reservations…a place you’ve walked by a zillion times might become your new favorite. That’s why it’s called ‘Taste of Key West’. The event can be just as much about introductions as it is welcome back.”
