The Insiders: It’s a Jungian out there, or at least at NEC Concord tonight

Tuesday, April 22, 2014

We would never send you to meet a serial killer. That’s just bad business, as far as we’re concerned. But we would send you to a discussion about a book about the mindset of serial killers. In fact, that’s exactly what we’re doing right now. Aaron B. Daniels will visit NEC Concord tonight at 6 to discuss his book, Jungian Crime Scene Analysis: An Imaginal Investigation. If you’re wondering where … 0

The Insiders: Peep these tasty Easter brunches

Saturday, April 19, 2014

Happy Easter, readers. Here’s hoping you’ve mowed through a couple of piles of candy, and also mowed all the fake green grass that has no doubt become the new turf in your living room. We spent our morning trying to host the first-ever bunny hunt, the obvious follow-up to an egg hunt, but it turns out bunnies are hard to find because they … 0

The Insiders: How many eggs can you fit in your basket?

Friday, April 18, 2014

With the Easter Bunny’s arrival less than 24 hours away, we can hardly contain our excitement. We’re talking setting up our own Easter egg hunts kind of excited. (Which FYI, doesn’t work because you already know where the eggs are.) But for all the kids out there, the Concord Parks & Rec department has you covered. So there’s no need to hide your … 0

The Insiders: What could be more fun than a town meeting sing-a-long?

Saturday, March 15, 2014

By the time you read this, we’ll both be out covering town meetings today (shameless news plug). If things get too slow at any point, we were thinking of starting a town meeting sing-a-long, where we beatbox while someone raps all the cool stuff on the warrant. It’s … 0

The Insiders: Robots, firefighters and caterpillars – not a bad Friday night

Friday, March 14, 2014

We don’t know about you, but this winter thing is getting pretty old. Pretty old indeed. There always has to be that storm that painstakingly brings us back to reality after a few warm days. But our prediction – no more storms this year. If we’re wrong, we’ll … 0

The Insiders: Here’s your chance to buy some sweet local art

Thursday, March 13, 2014

Is there a space in your house just screaming for some new art? And are you one of those people who only like one-of-a-kind paintings that will never be duplicated? Well, look no further then Intown Concord’s third annual Locally Famous Art Auction tonight at 5:30 in the … 0

The Insiders: Why weren’t we in the Bengal lancer movie?

Sunday, March 9, 2014

We were many things before we were celebrated newspaper columnists, like less celebrated newspaper columnists (current level of celebration inflated by family commentary). Little-known fact: We were also once Bengal Lancers. Nobody ever made a movie about us in that capacity, but someone did make a movie about … 0

The Insiders: This local music is (possibly) more melodic than our column

Saturday, March 8, 2014

We always sort of imagine that you read this column with classical music playing gently in the background, or running serenely through your head. The exquisite melodic nature, the soothing effects, it must be so peaceful. And the music probably isn’t bad, either. Instead of listening to music … 0

The Insiders: Time to bring the Mardi Gras party to New Hampshire

Friday, March 7, 2014

Did you miss your chance to go to Fat Tuesday? Well, don’t worry because the Capitol Center for the Arts has got you covered. Tonight is your chance to get in on the fun and party like you’re on the streets of New Orleans. The Spirit of Mardi … 0

The Insiders: Check out the best student art not hanging from your Christmas tree

Thursday, March 6, 2014

It’s a scientific fact that more student art hangs from Christmas trees than anywhere else on an annual basis (the science of that scientific fact has not been verified by scientists). But the Concord School District is about to take its annual stab at shattering that image when … 0

The Insiders: Get your bug knowledge on in case it ever gets warm again

Wednesday, March 5, 2014

You know what they always say about March – in like a really, really arctically cold lion, out like probably a less frigid lamb. Even the heartiest of New Englanders have to be getting frustrated with the pounding this winter has delivered. It’s reached the point where we’re … 0

The Insiders: Merrimack Music makes a Hasselhoffian return

Saturday, March 1, 2014

Triumphant returns are always memorable. Just think how excited you were when David Hasselhoff returned from relative obscurity to sell Cumberland Farms coffee products. Wait, that’s still relative obscurity? Well, you know what we mean. Anyway, you can experience a triumphant return yourself this afternoon when Merrimack Music … 0

The Insiders: Celebrate Dr. Seuss’s birthday with a party this fine day

Saturday, March 1, 2014

‘You have brains in your head. You have feet in your shoes. You can steer yourself any direction you choose. You’re on your own. And you know what you know. And YOU are the one who’ll decide where to go . . .” But there’s no need for … 0

The Insiders: A weekend of gaming glory is just a few short hours away

Thursday, February 27, 2014

Have you been itching for a chance to get together with fellow game fanatics? Do you miss those late nights and long weekends of hanging out with friends and just gaming? We understand your pain, and that’s why we want to make you aware of something that will … 0

The Insiders: Get set for an evening of folk dancing around the world

Wednesday, February 26, 2014

It’s time to lace up those shoes and hit the dance floor. But make sure you choose ones with slick soles because sneakers won’t help you when it comes to the Concord International Folk Dancing tonight at the IBEW Building on Airport Road. Light, non-stick shoes are the … 0
