I never thought I'd see the word "Baltimore" paired with "Grand Prix," but here we are. Engines are about to be started, checkered flags are unfurled and the Inner Harbor looks like "Mario Kart." But will the Grand Prix be good for Baltimore? Hey, it did bring Colin Powell in town as grand marshal to actually say, "Ladies and gentlemen, start your engines." I can soon cross that off my to-experience list. Friday through Sunday. Taking over the Inner Harbor. Tickets and schedule, baltimoregrandprix.com.
