The Baltimore Grand Prix lurched toward its starting line Thursday as downtown was consumed by the chaos of last-minute preparations for the three-day event. Wide-scale road closings began to take effect, preparing the race course along downtown streets for high-speed practice runs. And that forced businesses, schools and residents to adjust routines to cope with the blocked roads and walkways, public transit changes and increased traffic near the track. But getting downtown Baltimore to grind to a halt was no easy task.

That has left little room for discussion of the real issues, all sides agree.

This weekend, I was not going to go Dutch. Yes, we were in the "Dutch Country. " Lancaster County, Pa., to be exact. But I was not going to stuff my face at Kitchen Kettle Village, gawk at Amish buggies or get sidetracked by the QVC or Pottery Barn outlets. No. The goal of this two-day getaway was to discover the other Lancaster — the one that sits downtown within a compact 7 square miles and offers an artsy and hip vibe. Theater. Architecture. Galleries. Farm-to-table eateries.
