The Insiders: It’s a holiday weekend, so get out and explore

Friday, August 29, 2014

So it’s the first day of a much needed holiday weekend and you’re looking for something fun to do. Well, you’ve come to the right place. We’re chock full of great ideas, as if you didn’t already know that. But instead of pointing you to just one place, why not make this an adventure day – and one that requires absolutely no money. Assuming you have gas (because you do … 0

The Insiders: Here’s your second chance to see ‘Northern Borders’ for the first time

Thursday, August 28, 2014

Jay Craven is a fan of the city of Concord. And it’s safe to say that the city feels the same way – well at least when it comes to his film, Northern Borders. Craven brought his movie to Red River Theatres earlier this month for what turned out to be a successful four-day stint during a tour of New England. And before … 0

The Insiders: Listen to some old music without the use of a time machine

Wednesday, August 27, 2014

Can you hear that? Those groovin’ sounds filling your ear canals are the very first practice of the newly formed Insiders, a classic rock band that consists of Keith on the keytar and kazoo, and Tim rocking out on the sarrusophone and trongos. And in the case that you actually can hear it, which would be incredible since we practice in a heavily … 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

The Insiders: Meet Lucy Audubon – or at least someone who plays her.

Wednesday, August 6, 2014

We’ve all at one point or another wanted to go back in time. Who wouldn’t want to grab a pint at an old west saloon, roam the earth with dinosaurs (the vegetarian kind that is) or watch as the first pyramid takes shape. And of course go all … 0

The Insiders: Have puns of fun at the library tonight with the Ukeladies

Tuesday, August 5, 2014

This may come as a shock to you, but we utilize our fair share of puns (and sarcasm!) at the Insider. But sometimes we like it when someone takes care of a perfectly-crafted pun for us, and today happens to be one of those days, because the New … 0

The Insiders: To-do list: Feed your exotic pets, then enjoy National Night Out on Tuesday

Sunday, August 3, 2014

Here’s a quick look behind the curtain of the Insider date book for last night: nap, eat tacos, nap, walk and feed the ocelot, head out for a night on the town. But what about a night out … 0

The Insiders: Catch up with a bunch of your favorite characters, non-Insider staff division, tonight at the Capitol Center

Thursday, July 31, 2014

We’re a big fan of mashups, especially when they involve delicious foods. Peanut butter and chocolate, pretzels and chocolate, strawberries and chocolate, dark chocolate and chocolate – we’d eat pretty much any of those (confession: we’re eating most of them right now). But mashups work in other realms … 0

The Insiders: So where is Waldo, really? Tonight he’s at Gibson’s, with some sweet prizes for you

Wednesday, July 30, 2014

It used to be that finding Waldo in the midst of a crowd featuring only people that looked and dressed almost exactly like each other produced little more than personal satisfaction in terms of payoff. No more! For tonight is the wrap-up party for the downtown Concord Waldo … 0

The Insiders: Head over to the library and get a lesson in homebrewing

Tuesday, July 29, 2014

It’s no secret how much we appreciate beer. Well, maybe love is a better word to describe it. With all the different variations, styles and flavor combinations, making beer should really be considered an art form – just one that also happens to be quite delicious. And we … 0

The Insiders: This paddle trip with Five Rivers ought to float your boat

Saturday, July 26, 2014

There’s no truth to the rumor that the script for A River Runs Through It was originally penned about Concord, or that we were originally considered for the role played by Brad Pitt. In fact, there’s no such rumor at all. But the fact of the matter is … 0

The Insiders: It’s an anniversary party and you’re invited

Wednesday, July 23, 2014

It’s been 40 years since the Pierce Brigade officially saved the Pierce Manse from demolition and opened the estate to the public. And what better way to mark the milestone then with a good ol’ celebration. For those of you who may not know, Franklin Pierce has a … 0

The Insiders: You’re invited to Batman’s birthday party at Red River Theatres

Tuesday, July 22, 2014

Batman is like James Bond in that he’s not actually a thing (sorry, spoiler alert). But also in the fact that in both instances, different generations identify with different leading men. When it comes to the Caped Crusader, viewers of a certain age – a group the Insider … 0

The Insiders: Time to spruce up your garden for our next (incognito) visit

Sunday, July 20, 2014

Sunday is a good day to spend in your garden. And we should know – we’re outside in your garden right now. Just go to the window and, yup, that’s us waving at you. Of course, that’s not … 0

The Insiders: We yell fire truck pull in a crowded newspaper column

Friday, July 18, 2014

All good things must come to an end, readers, so we might as well wrap up today’s column. Just kidding – we barely started it. But we’ll use it to tell you today is the final day of Market Days, and there’s tons of great stuff going on, … 0
