The Insiders: Fling something besides your frustrating clubs at this Beaver Meadow FlingGolf demo

Saturday, September 13, 2014

We’ve played fling golf plenty of times. You probably know it well, too – it’s when you hit a drive 18 feet to your right that lands in the golf course neighbor’s shrubs and you fling your club through their kitchen window. Isn’t it? Actually, no, it isn’t. At least not officially. FlingGolf is a growing sport in which you fling a golf ball with a FlingStick, which loosely resembles … 0

The Insiders: Take a bunch of steps for animalkind at tomorrow’s SPCA Walk For The Animals

Friday, September 12, 2014

If you thought your morning trips to the park with your four-legged companion counted as walks for the animals, you’ve been sorely mistaken. We mean, really – your four-legged companion doesn’t even have a dog. No, the real Walk For The Animals is tomorrow morning, as the annual SPCA fundraiser begins with registration at 9:30 a.m. at Northeast Delta Dental. It’s a day … 0

The Insiders: The town’s already been painted, all you have to do now is bid on some awesome art at Kimball-Jenkins

Thursday, September 11, 2014

We figured we’d start today with a legal disclaimer: Sometimes the words we use are event names and not actual instructions. For instance, tonight is the third annual Paint the Town Art Auction at Kimball-Jenkins, which is a thing you should go to and not a thing you should do (besides, you’d need an awful lot of paint to put a full coat … 0

The Insiders: Look at some shiny things – and enjoy a lot of family fun

Friday, August 22, 2014

For anything to last 51 years is quite an accomplishment. And for those who aren’t so great at math that’s just over half a century (which is 100 years). Don’t feel bad, we had to look it up too. Any who, if you feel like being a part … 0

The Insiders: There’s a barnstorm blowing through town, and you can catch it tonight at Red River Theatres

Thursday, August 21, 2014

We consider ourselves fans of several kinds of storms. Thunderstorms, for instance, are fun to watch and often provide a break in summer humidity. And Hannah Storm continues to look tremendous at 52. But here’s an underrated kind of storm: a barnstorm. And there’s one coming to a … 5

The Insiders: It’s beer night in New Hampshire, or at least at Gibson’s.

Thursday, August 21, 2014

Whether you’re a hop-crazed IPA enthusiast, a budding brewer or a 21-year-old sitting at the local pub about to buy your first (legal) adult beverage, beer always makes for a great topic of conversation. How could it not? It’s delicious, could be considered nutritious (that’s if you add … 0

The Insiders: Stop working on your really old home and pitch in at the Audi

Wednesday, August 20, 2014

There’s a good chance many of you are living in houses that are at least 110 years old. This is New England, after all. The last brand-new house built within state lines is estimated at 1984 (estimation approximate … 0

The Insiders: Porkfest is definitely the best food-based festival in town today

Saturday, August 16, 2014

It should come as no surprise to you that most of our favorite festivals are food-based. Of course, not all of them are home runs. Prunefest didn’t quite work out the way we’d hoped, and we were forced to cancel Sardineapalooza after only a few minutes. But some … 0

The Insiders: Kids made art, now you can make a difference by visiting Bicentennial Square

Saturday, August 16, 2014

Art comes in many forms. For instance, when Keith tries to paint stuff – as he inexplicably has done twice for the Insider now – it comes in the form of awkward looking things. At today’s Concord Arts Market, though, there’s art of maybe the best kind. Art … 0

The Insiders: Red Rivers is adding sound to silent film and you should check it out

Thursday, August 14, 2014

When silent films were created, audiences were in awe. Now, a silent film has it’s place in history, but the thought of a movie created today without the use of sound is like making chocolate chip cookies without the chocolate chips. It just doesn’t make sense. So you … 0

The Insiders: Calling all volunteers, your presence is requested

Wednesday, August 13, 2014

It’s no secret we like to help people. Each week, we point you to the coolest events, share the funniest pictures and keep you up to date on all the happening things Concord has to offer. No need to thank us. As the great Superman once said, “All … 0

The Insiders: You can juggle chainsaws later; check out this movie at Red River tonight instead

Tuesday, August 12, 2014

Wednesday nights are good nights for a lot of things. Dinosaur hunting, chainsaw juggling and pudding eating contests are three of our favorite activities. But Wednesdays are also good for watching great movies, which we presume is why Red River Theatres established the Great Movies on Wednesday Evenings … 0

The Insiders: The Fresh Prince thinks you should have the Girl Scouts wash your car today

Saturday, August 9, 2014

Girl Scout cookie season may be over (unless you were smart like us and bought 237 boxes), but Girl Scout doing-stuff-to-make-your-life-easier season sure isn’t. At least it doesn’t seem to be, what with today’s Girl Scout Benefit Car Wash at Arnie’s Place at 164 Loudon Road. Between 10 … 0

The Insiders: Let the Knights of Columbus cook you some delicious chicken

Saturday, August 9, 2014

When the Knights of Columbus speak, you listen (do they speak, though? Are they a real thing?) And when they chicken barbecue, you most definitely also chicken barbecue. So guess what you’re doing this evening? Chicken barbecue! The Knights of Columbus are hosting their annual chicken barbecue event … 0

The Insiders: It’s movie day at the library, so why not go watch.

Thursday, August 7, 2014

Movie nights are just the best. How can you go wrong when your evening activity involves relaxing on a comfy piece of furniture with your favorite snacks and getting totally lost in an interesting tale for a couple hours? We equate it to the feeling most of you … 0
