Things to do in Tampa Bay for March 22

Honda Grand Prix: You might not see them, but if you're anywhere near St. Petersburg, you'll hear the Indy cars whizzing through the streets starting today, with the main event on Sunday. For the first time, organizers have added go kart track so that spectators can test their racing skills. Racing begins at 8 a.m. at the Race Track Area, Albert Whitted Airport to First Street SE, St. Petersburg. $20-$55 general, $50-$135 reserved. (877) 283-5385.

When the World Was Green (A Chef's Fable): An old man who was once a superb chef unfolds a mysterious story when a young reporter comes to interview him in prison.

CORRECTION

The Art in the Park event Wednesday is at St. Petersburg College Seminole Campus, 200 113th St. N. An incorrect location was listed in Thursday's Weekend section.

TO WATCH

Tanked, 9 p.m., Animal Planet The Tropical Smoothie Cafe on Tampa Road asks Wayde and Brett to make an aquarium in the shape of a smoothie cup. We haven't been to that location in a while, so you'll have to tell us if they made it or not.

SEASON FINALE Last Man Standing, 8 p.m., ABC Home Improvement's Jonathan Taylor Thomas stars as one of Kristin's former coworkers who is now a successful restaurant owner. And you thought he was just annoying playing Randy.
