Monaco Grand Prix's insider take:

The madly popular European sport of Formula One (or just F1) racing comes to Monaco just once a year—and it is an event. Held on a Sunday toward the end of May, the race often overlaps with the Cannes Film Festival down the coast, providing a double dose of glamour with two different demographics (think sports fans and lizard-skinned yacht owners vs. Hollywood celebrities, paparazzi, and, well, lizard-skinned yacht owners). The city is closed off as massively overpowered open-wheel cars scream around its tight bends, up and down its hills, and past the port, all to a packed crowd. Don't count on getting a room in town without reserving months, or even years, in advance; the same goes for staking a claim to a table at the more glamorous restaurants like Le Louis XV.

Are we all supposed to be so "in the know" that we know the date for the Grand Prix? Sure would be nice to know when it actually was. more
