The Insiders: Read this column, but probably don’t suggest it at tomorrow’s Gibson’s Book Club planning event

Saturday, August 1, 2015

It’s a pretty rewarding feeling to be on the ground floor of something wildly successful. That’s why we opened a new business called “Wildly Successful” and built it entirely on one level. That way everyone gets to experience it! You can have a similar experience tomorrow night without ever stepping foot in our (not a real thing) business venture when the Gibson’s Book Club meets to map out another year …

The Insiders: Get off the couch and help out a couple worthwhile causes today

Saturday, August 1, 2015

Happy August everyone. It’s hard to believe that July is over and September is not far away, but let’s enjoy the time we have with the eighth month of the year while it’s here. Now we have a couple of worthwhile causes for you to support this weekend. From 11 a.m. to 4 …

The Insiders: We’ll explain how baby musicals are made, but only if you promise to see Legally Blonde, Jr. tonight

Thursday, July 30, 2015

This is a conversation we should probably have had some time ago, but it’s time for us to sit down and explain how some productions are made. You see, there’s the birds and the bees and sometimes two scripts fall in love, and then another script is made, which we assume is how …

The Insiders: You can meet some artists, hang with a NASCAR driver or listen to some music. The choice is yours.

Thursday, July 16, 2015

If you’ve stopped by Kimball-Jenkins in the last week and half, you may have seen the most recent exhibit courtesy of Peter Coe and Rosemary Conroy. The show just opened July 6, and it runs through Aug. 28, …

Play some softball for a cause

Saturday, July 11, 2015

Those smarty pantses over at the Frank Monahan Foundation never stop coming up with cool stuff to do to benefit the city. They’ve helped refurbish basketball courts, donated brand new uniforms to local high school hoops teams and plenty of other stuff – and this year they’ve added …

The Insiders: Eagle Square will be rockin’ thanks to Delaine Pickering.

Wednesday, July 8, 2015

We understand, it’s hard to look at Eagle Square the same. After dancing your heart out there for three days straight during Market Days, the eerie silence of the Concord downtown spot is not something anybody enjoys. It’s …

The Insiders: There’s a pretty big game at Memorial Field today, so you should go watch.

Wednesday, July 8, 2015

It’s game day people and we want to see what kind of fans you really are. So throw on your best face paint, bust out your finest Crimson attire and get ready to scream till you can’t scream …

The Insiders: Peek back in time without a Delorean at today’s time capsule opening

Wednesday, July 8, 2015

In our experience, ice cream is almost always the headliner. Think about it – there aren’t many things that could share real estate with cake and still be considered the highlight. Today, though, ice cream is merely the appetizer (personally, we think that’s how more meals should work), …

The Insiders: If you can’t make it to space this weekend, got to Aerospacefest instead

Wednesday, July 8, 2015

We’d love to go to space, but unfortunately it’s not exactly something we can write off on our monthly travel expenses. Good thing the McAuliffe- Shepard Discovery Center gives you all the feelings of orbiting the Earth, just …

The Insiders: Kimball-Jenkins is hosting a fairy house build, need we say more?

Wednesday, July 8, 2015

Sure, there’s lots of things to do on a nice Sunday in June. You could spend time in your garden, take a ride to the beach to soak in some rays or sit down and rank your favorite Insider stories from the previous month. But what if we …

The Insiders: There’s a music festival in Concord today, do we really need to say any more?

Wednesday, July 8, 2015

Live music is kind of a thing in Concord. From the Capitol Center for the Arts and True Brew to Hermanos and Penuche’s, there’s pretty much somewhere to go on any given night to catch a local show. …

The Insiders: Hit up Gibson’s this afternoon to learn about George H. W. Bush, then get ready for Bush vs. Clinton 2036

Wednesday, July 8, 2015

Politics season is the only season that happens more frequently and lasts longer than winter around here, and we’re right in the middle of it right now. And politics season can mean only one thing: time to talk …

The Insiders: It’s the final day of Market Days, so don’t miss out.

Wednesday, July 8, 2015

We know this is going to be a little sad for all of you to hear, but we have to tell you – this is the final day of Market Days. The good news though is that you …

The Insiders: Hall & Oates would totally go to this printmaking demo at Mill Brook Gallery tonight

Wednesday, July 8, 2015

When you can get two titans in any particular field together, the results are usually good. Think about it – nobody wants some Hall without any Oates. And can we just stop for a minute to recognize the …

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 …
