The Insiders: Concord continues its reign as king of all walks with today’s MS Journey of Hope

Saturday, September 27, 2014

We consider Concord the international pace-setter in several categories. Hair salons. Law offices. General John Stark statues. But it’s also becoming the world’s pre-eminent locale for walks. Official walks, we mean. The first official Mayor’s Walk was less than two weeks ago, the first Walk A Mile In Her Shoes event – where men and other participants parade up and … 3

The Insiders: Become a detective like you read about at the library today

Saturday, September 27, 2014

If you’ve watched as many episodes of Law and Order as we have, you know certain things about the criminal justice process: Suspects love weaving recklessly through back alleys, major case breakthroughs usually follow dramatic violin interludes, and every couple of seasons you have to hire a new and more attractive assistant DA. Also, it’s always satisfying to wrap up a case. Well … 0

The Insiders: Buy a T-shirt and get Connolly Tough

Thursday, September 25, 2014

Going for a nice walk is considered a good thing. It allows us to get fresh air and a little exercise at the same time, something we can all agree that we need more of. But if you make your way to Concord High School tomorrow, you can add contributing to a good … 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

The Insiders: Take the plunge and check out The River stage at Market Days

Thursday, July 17, 2014

Here’s a quick history lesson for you this morning: Did you know that, as with so many good jams, the old ditty about the little piggy going to market was actually edited so it could better fit into a pop radio format? The original first line told of … 0

The Insiders: Walk around Main Street today. It’s ok, it’s Market Days!

Wednesday, July 16, 2014

Now we’re not ones to advise you to pull a Matt Bonner and walk out into the middle of a busy street, merely for a picture with the NBA Championship trophy during a whirlwind tour of the city like he did last week. But since there will be … 0

The Insiders: Share poetry and maybe learn ways to describe body parts at Gibson’s tonight

Wednesday, July 16, 2014

It’s the third Wednesday of the month, which can only mean one thing: There have already been two other Wednesdays in the month. Actually, it means two things, because it’s also the Poetry Society of New Hampshire’s poetry reading and open mic night at Gibson’s Bookstore at 7 … 0
