The Insiders: Come for the science and stay for the, um, science (and the fun!) with The Amazing Nano Brothers

Saturday, January 24, 2015

Nothing gets a party started quite like nanoscale science and technology, amirite? We’re talking molecules and probe microscopy and probably some other kinds of scopys – you know, the kind of stuff that just screams FUN! And you think we’re being sarcastic – we’re actually just describing this afternoon’s show by the Amazing Nano Brothers at 1 at the Capitol Center for the Arts. It’s family-friendly fun, featuring a live …

The Insiders: Go to these events today and we promise not to give you any homework

Saturday, January 24, 2015

We’re going old school today in the most literal sense. Well, maybe not the absolute literal sense – we’re not moving into a tiny schoolhouse and slapping you across the knuckles with a ruler. But we’re throwing it back to the days when you used to review what you learned, by reviewing some awesome stuff we’ve already told you about but remains on …

The Insiders: We’ve got three words for you, mac and cheese

Friday, January 23, 2015

There’s a lot you can do with macaroni and cheese. In addition to using just about any kind of cheese imaginable, you can add bacon, ham or pulled pork. You can even throw in some veggies if you’re into that kind of thing. And don’t forget to check out your spice cabinet cause you’ll probably find something that will help add a little …

The Insiders: It’s late January and cold, and that means it’s Black Ice hockey time

Thursday, January 22, 2015

It’s a little hard to admit this, having lived in New Hampshire for approximately 97 percent of our lives, but we can’t skate. Ice, roller, you name it and we can’t do it. So it’s probably a good thing that we didn’t sign up for the fifth annual …

The Insiders: McGowan Fine Art proves ice isn’t the only thing blooming at this time of year

Thursday, January 22, 2015

If you’ve been out tending to your garden lately, you’ve probably noticed this year’s crop of ice has really been growing nicely. You’re also probably really cold. There’s just not a lot in bloom at this time of year – unless you hit up McGowan Fine Art for …

The Insiders: Sing aloud or read aloud, it’s your choice

Wednesday, January 21, 2015

We know it’s a scary thought, but it’s finally time. You’ve been sitting on that poetry you wrote that one time for way too long, and now the world needs to hear it. Your mirror and cat are no longer an acceptable audience, and like us, they would …

The Insiders: They don’t sell the legs diamond at Jared, so you’ll have to go to Red River

Sunday, January 18, 2015

If you have a TV, you’ve probably heard of diamonds. There are, um, a few commercials featuring the jewels out there (GO AWAY JARED). And what’s up with the people who name them? Chocolate diamonds? Sounds like they’d go great with some peanut butter. Anyway, you’ve probably never …

The Insiders: You can’t be first to the moon, but you can be one of the first to check out this Concord Chorale concert

Thursday, January 15, 2015

Being the first one to stuff is fun. Take the moon, for instance – that’s the kind of stuff MTV award statues are made of. You probably won’t get bronzed into figurine form if you go to the Concord Chorale concert tonight, but you will be among the …

The Insiders: Let’s make this the best birthday Concord has ever seen

Wednesday, January 14, 2015

There’s nothing better than a rocking birthday celebration. We just threw a huge one a few months back to mark eight years of the Insider. You should have come, there was cake, cookies and lots of autographs. Boy, did we feel important. But when it’s a really special …

The Insiders: Can we bug you to go to this educational evening at St. Paul’s?

Tuesday, January 13, 2015

Breaking news: It’s not warm out. We mention this not to highlight our penchant for being the first to a major news story, but rather to warn you that the event we’re about to point you toward is …

The Insiders: We have six words for you - Grand Champion of Macaroni and Cheese

Saturday, January 10, 2015

Some titles simply imply a tremendous amount of prestige, but most of them are probably out of the average person’s reach (they usually put those titles on really high shelves). Not today, though – because we’re going to tell you how you can become the Grand Champion of …

The Insiders: Enjoy today’s sing-along at the library in case this Frozen thing catches on

Saturday, January 10, 2015

We like to be on the cutting edge of things whenever possible. And because we have a column that we have to fill with all these words and stuff every day, that means you get to come along …

The Insiders: They can’t represent you legally, but Bach, Mendelssohn and Loeillet can make for a fun Friday night tonight

Friday, January 9, 2015

There are a lot of law firms in Concord – like, really a lot– but as far as we know none of them are the firm of Bach, Mendelssohn and Loeillet. Mostly because those are all composer dudes from a long time ago and not lawyers (some of …

The Insiders: Help redesign Main Street tonight – or at least give some ideas.

Thursday, January 8, 2015

We all like to have our opinions heard. Like what sounds good for dinner, what color will look best on the living room walls and how many days is too many to spend with extended family on vacation. Our thoughts are tacos, toasted marshmallow and four – unless …
