The Insiders: It’s almost time to celebrate America’s independence so rest up

Friday, July 3, 2015

We hope that most of you are rereading this in your swim suit and arm floaties as you ramp up to celebrate America’s independence. It’s never too early to get ready, especially when arm floaties are involved. And since the holiday will likely be filled with lots of backyard activities, a significant amount of food and maybe a trip to …

The Insiders: Go to Gibson’s tonight for this novel discussion and maybe find a quote from us on a book jacket

Wednesday, July 1, 2015

You know you’ve officially arrived when you’re a person quoted on a book jacket. It’s an even bigger representation of said arrival when the quote is actually printed on the book jacket and not just scribbled there with the pen you had in your pocket while walking the aisles of the book store. …

The Insiders: It’s the first day of July and St. Paul’s is hosting a blood drive

Wednesday, July 1, 2015

In case it slipped your mind, let us be the first to officially welcome you to July. We’re expecting it to be quite a month ’cause things can really get crazy as the summer fun sets in. But before all of that, why don’t you take a few minutes to flip the page …

The Insiders: Get rested and hydrated, it’s time for Market Days, day two

Thursday, June 25, 2015

We’re sure you spent all Thursday taking in the wonders that Market Days has to offer (because we assume you’re not against having fun), and we hope you drank plenty of fluids and got a good night’s sleep, …

The Insiders: It’s the start of Market Days, need we say more?

Wednesday, June 24, 2015

If you plan on taking a cruise down Main Street this afternoon, you might want to reconsider. You’ll probably be stuck in traffic for a while – like until late Saturday night. Instead, we urge you to go …

The Insiders: It’s dad’s day, so get out there and do something with the fam

Sunday, June 21, 2015

It’s a big day for all you dads out there. This might be the one 24-hour block of time all year where whatever you says go. Use the power wisely. And even though there’s a chance of Mother Nature raining on your parade there’s still no reason to …

The Insiders: The emperor has some new clothes he’d like you to see at this dance recital tonight

Thursday, June 18, 2015

We think more people should nickname their children “The Emperor,” because those little rugrats will just not stop needing new clothes. It’s kind of ridiculous. Of course, walking the street introducing everyone to the emperor might earn you …

The Insiders: Check out these really sweet motorcycle tricks at Makris and then hitch a free ride.

Thursday, June 18, 2015

The thought of getting behind the handle bars of a motorcycle is a little terrifying for us and should be for all of you – that is if we actually got in the drivers seat and were able …

The Insiders: Rejected state motto or fun night of poetry? Find out at Slam Free or Die at Gibson’s tonight

Wednesday, June 17, 2015

Here’s a partial list of things we believe were rejected for New Hampshire’s state motto: Shovel for eight months free or die, vote for president before everyone else free or die, take your sales tax and shove it …

The Insiders: Trust us, the best part of this dance show at Concord High is that we’re not dancing in it

Friday, June 12, 2015

We’d be the first to willingly admit we weren’t exactly blessed with the rhythm gene. In fact, here’s a partial list of dance-related things we don’t have: vibes, style. But there are plenty of people in Concord who …

The Insiders: Head down to Gibson’s tonight if you’re looking for a good scare

Thursday, June 11, 2015

Let’s face it, we’re all afraid of ghosts. Even if you don’t believe they’re living in your attic, a strange noise in the middle of the night or scary movie will no doubt cause you to second guess …

The Insiders: Turns out you can get there from here – just go to Red River for today’s documentary

Wednesday, June 10, 2015

New England is associated with a ton of colloquial phrases, like “if you don’t like the weather, just wait 10 minutes,” and “they’re candlepins, dummy.” But one of the most famous might be “you can’t get there from …

The Insiders: This Road Warrior Foundation event is way cooler than anything you’d find in your box of cereal

Friday, June 5, 2015

It’s a special day, readers, and not just because we found the coolest trinket at the bottom of our box of Lucky Charms this morning. It’s not every day you get to say you took part in a …

The Insiders: This writing and yoga workshop is way better than your Sunday to-do list

Sunday, May 31, 2015

Things you are probably planning on doing today: mowing the lawn, getting the groceries, dropping the kids off, studying molecular physics, picking the kids up. More relaxing things you could be doing today instead: spending the afternoon at a writing and yoga workshop at At Om Yoga. We …

The Insiders: Dances like the ones you’ll see tonight from the Concord Dance Academy are numbered. Like, literally.

Thursday, May 28, 2015

We feel confident at this stage of our lives saying we’ve nailed the skills necessary for paint-by-numbers, so we’re pretty much professional artists now. Our dancing skills aren’t quite on par, though – which means someone should really …
