The Insiders: Walk with the Animals, or at least sign up to do so

Wednesday, July 9, 2014

As you may well know, we love animals. It’s almost to the point of obsession. Like where we can’t even walk down the street cause we want to photograph and pet just about each one we come across. And it’s only because from what we understand it’s frowned upon to give deer, moose and ducks a good scratch under the chin. Nevertheless, when it comes to our furry friends, we … 0

The Insiders: Want to hear a vibraphone? Then check out Hermanos tonight

Tuesday, July 8, 2014

It’s Wednesday and what better way to help you get over the hump than a little music to melt the night away. While driving down Main Street with the windows wide open and the latest grooving sounds that kids listen to these days blaring from your iPod does technically count, we have a better suggestion – make your way to Hermanos Cocina Mexicana … 0

The Insiders: Turns out Waldo has been in downtown Concord this whole time

Saturday, July 5, 2014

Here’s hoping you survived the first two-thirds of the July 4 weekend (and have returned to a state of relative dryness following Friday’s waterlogging). Today should most definitely be a day of rest and relaxation, so we dug up an activity you can do on your own time over the next few weeks. It’s perfect, especially if you love trying to find tiny … 0

The Insiders: Enjoy the final day of May

Saturday, May 31, 2014

Well folks, it’s hard to imagine but it’s just about time to put May in the old record books. It’s been a good run for the last 30 days as we’ve watched the weather improve so much that … 0

The Insiders: It’s international “Write A Column About International Night” Day

Thursday, May 29, 2014

So, readers, what’s on the menu for this evening? No, seriously, that’s not rhetorical – we want to know what you’re making us for dinner. We are still invited, aren’t we? Perhaps we can postpone our little dinner soiree for a few weeks since there are so many … 0

The Insiders: Check out the new SPCA and bring home a pet.

Wednesday, May 28, 2014

We know it can be a bit sad to visit animals at places like the newly opened Pope Memorial SPCA. All those cute and cuddly creatures without a home to call their own makes you want to open the back door to your car and load up as … 0

The Insiders: Ease back into things with a walk along the Appalachian Trail

Tuesday, May 27, 2014

We know you’re probably digging your way out of a barbecue-induced food coma (at least you should be). So we’ll ease you back into things this week with a laid-back event or two for your Wednesday. So who’s ready for some skydiving lessons! Just kidding, that seems kind … 0

The Insiders: Let’s all parade downtown to watch the parade

Saturday, May 24, 2014

You could say we’re live-in-the-moment kind of people here at the Insider. That’s why we spend most of our time telling you fun things to do in a few hours. Today, though, you get a little more lead time – that’s what happens when you have a long … 0

The Insiders: Pet some animals and learn how to farm

Friday, May 23, 2014

It’s not every day you get to meet a real life farmer. But today, consider yourself lucky because the New Hampshire Farm Bureau has you covered with the Young Farmers Open House at its headquarters, 295 Sheep Davis Road. Dairy and vegetable farmers will talk about some tricks … 0

The Insiders: Musical performances that may or may not include snakes doing yoga

Thursday, May 22, 2014

Memorial Day weekend officially begins today, which means even if you’re reading this at work, you’re probably already on auto pilot, maybe even more so than usual. We’ve actually been at a barbecue for the last six hours; this column was written by our automated column writing program. … 0

The Insiders: Women and sawing do we need to say more?

Wednesday, May 21, 2014

When the Hurricane of 1938 roared through New Hampshire, it left a trail of devastation in its wake. Well, at least that’s what we’ve heard. Because in case you didn’t know, we weren’t actually born for another 42 years. But luckily, Sarah Shea Smith knows a lot about … 0

The Insiders: It’s time for the Cappies with a capital Cappie

Tuesday, May 20, 2014

Note from the shameless plug department: The following is a shameless plug. This week’s Insider hits newsstands today, and it’d be in your best interest to pick one up. Why? Well, because that’s always the case (shameless mode engaged). But really, because it’s the Cappies issue, our annual … 0

The Insiders: If you’re hearing 80 voices today, you’re doing something right

Saturday, May 17, 2014

If you hear 80 voices regularly, that might be a sign that something strange is going on. Today, though, you can hear 80 voices without the pressure of all of your friends and family telling you to seek help. That’s because the Concord Chorale is celebrating its 45th … 0

The Insiders: Carnival food and sanctioned people crashing sounds like a fun Saturday to us

Friday, May 16, 2014

There will probably be plenty of people crashing into each other at the Concord Kiwanis Fair all weekend long, thanks to dizzying rides – and maybe to unsteady legs after inhaling inhumane portions of carnival grub. But today you can step inside the Everett Arena to see sanctioned … 0

The Insiders: Sorry dudes, this dance party is strictly for the ladies

Friday, May 16, 2014

You would never bring your mom to prom, not unless you were actively looking for a way to ensure a lifetime of harassment from your buddies. Truthfully, your mom probably wouldn’t want to go to prom, anyway – at least not with you. She needs a break from … 0
