Reader Review: The Grand Prix Delivers a Fine Finish

One devoted reader emailed me over the weekend to tell me how much he and his family enjoyed the Grand Prix.  I invited him to share his experience with you. His enthusiastic first-person account of a day at the races will have you marking your calendar for 2014!

It also gives me the opportunity to introduce a reader-driven column that I have wanted to publish on the Baltimore Fishbowl for some time.  It is called “Rant or Rave” and it will give our readers the chance to let the Baltimore Fishbowl audience know about a local place or thing that is spectacularly wonderful or awful.  Please don’t abuse the opportunity with shameless plugs or angry diatribes.  (Not that anyone in the Baltimore Fishbowl would ever resort to such behavior!) If you have a rant or rave you care to share, email me at [email protected] -SD

On Saturday our little family (my wife, our two daughters, a friend and I) went downtown to check out the American LeMans Series portion of the Baltimore Grand Prix.  Race organizers had been promising a lot: a full day of auto racing through the streets of downtown, a festival of entertainment in the race village, and a rock concert by the band “Live” to top it off at the end of the day.  And they did not disappoint.  (Full disclosure: fast cars and loud music are two of my great passions!)  We all agreed the day’s events were extremely well-organized and well worth the nearly $90 price of admission.

The “ALMS” races, as they are called, promise to be among the most frenetic in all of automobile racing: three different classes of cars race each other on the same track at the same time.  It is literally three races in one.  The “slower” class of cars are stock BMW’s and Porsches, plenty loud and fast enough to stand alone as an enjoyable car race to see in person.  But, then, pile on a second class of Ferraris and Saleen style cars, together with a third class of rocket-fast LeMans style cars, and you have a schmorgasbord of high octane racing to please even the most discerning of race fans.  With so many different types of racers sharing the track, it was no surprise that a multi-car crash delayed the race for a half hour on the race’s very first lap!

The Donegal (pronounced ‘dä-ne-gäl) X-Press has emerged as one of the premiere Irish-American roots rock groups in the country. The high-energy, six-piece outfit has gained praise and fans from New York to Ireland, Baltimore to Nashville and beyond. DXP blends a unique combination of traditional Irish music with American country and blues, folk and rock, rhythm and funk, which John O’Regan of Roots Magazine calls, “…creative ferocity not seen since The Clash’s London Calling period.”

_______________

Everyone is invited to join the Waterfront Partnership, Downtown Baltimore Family Alliance, the governor, the mayor and the Flanigan family on Sunday, May 6 at 2 p.m. to celebrate the grand opening of Pierce’s Park , a new park on a one-acre parcel of land at Pier 5 between the Columbus Center and Eastern Avenue.

The park is dedicated to the memory of Baltimore contractor and civic leader Pierce J. Flanigan III. The ribbon cutting ceremony will be followed by a day of children’s activities and live entertainment.

The park includes sculptures designed by local artist David Hess and landscape features that promote play and imagination. Pierce’s Park was built as a sustainable space and as such includes indigenous trees and native plants, as well as bioretention facilities to educate children about the benefits of capturing runoff. The park also offers visitors free wireless access to the Internet.
