Baltimore Grand Prix best bet: The Budweiser Block Party

August 23, 2011|By Richard Gorelick | The Baltimore Sun

The best ticket option for the Grand Prix could be the Grounds Admission - a three-day pass is $65. You don't get reserved seating, but you get to roam around, which is what people are going to be doing anyway in between races, I'm thinking.

The Grounds Admission pass gives you access to it Budweiser Block Party, which is on the old McCormick lot on the corner of Charles and Conway. Dave Rather of Mother's Federal Hill Grille is putting together the "restaurant row" within the site. Lined up so far, Rather says, are Jimmy's Famous Seafood (steamed crabs), Langermann's, Ryleigh's Oyster (oysters), Bluegrass (homemade sausage), Miguel's Cocina & Cantina, Rowhouse Grille, Cazbah and, of course Mother's, who will be selling hand-packed Angus beef burgers and turkey burgers.

98 Rock will be broadcasting live throughout the weekend here -- it sounds like a lot more fun than the corporarte tents.
