The Insiders: You don’t have to be lonely at the Penacook farmers market tomorrow

Saturday, July 25, 2015

If you’re like us, you wake up in the morning dreaming of eating fresh veggies, like pepperoni or pepper steak (we love almost everything in the pepper family, really). But you’re probably also thinking you missed your chance to hit up the local farmers market until next weekend. What if we told you that you could still get some super-fresh local stuff and even take all of today off? Yeah, …

The Insiders: Learn what breweriana is (we just did!) and then go check some of it out today

Saturday, July 25, 2015

Sometimes, there are weird words like breweriana. And sometimes those words are celebrating their 43rd annual convention in Concord today. That’s right, the Eastern Coast Breweriana Association’s 43rd annual convention is going on this weekend at the Grappone Conference Center, and the Breweriana Show is open to the public today from 10 a.m. …

The Insiders: It’s great day to get out there and walk for a good cause

Friday, July 24, 2015

If this was six months ago, the last thing we’d be telling you to do is go for a walk. We wouldn’t even recommend going outside. But since it’s summer, and there isn’t a ton of snow on the ground, it’s the perfect time for a little fresh air. Our sources have confirmed …

The Insiders: Keep those love letters coming; also, go see ‘Love Letters’ tonight

Thursday, May 21, 2015

We love that all of you send us love letters on a regular basis, even though your cute pet name for them is “Letters to the editor” and you write them all with that adorable biting sarcasm. That …

The Insiders: Run, walk or watch just be a part of Rock ‘N race tonight

Wednesday, May 20, 2015

Sure you can spend your afternoon working up a sweat listening to music on your head phones at the gym, but does that sound as fun as running around the streets of Concord among thousands of people while …

The Insiders: Hear the sounds of silence with a poetry open mic night at Gibson’s

Wednesday, May 20, 2015

There are many ingredients that go into a good open mic night – bacon, melted cheese, words and stuff – but among the most critical is actually making sounds. So we were a little taken aback when we …

The Insiders: Watch ‘A Year in the Blue’ at a theater named Red

Saturday, May 16, 2015

Sometimes it’s okay to celebrate things a day late. Please note, however, that your wedding anniversary and your spouse’s birthday are not those things. But something like Armed Forces Day fits the bill – it’s worthy of celebrating all weekend, especially because even though the official day was …

The Insiders: What happens when you mix music with a silent film? A new experience for tonight

Thursday, May 14, 2015

Back in the day, and we mean way back, watching a film with no sound was considered the cat’s meow – if that was even a thing. Nowadays we need action, dialogue and most certainly music. But what …

The Insiders: Go eat some unhealthy food and win a stuffed shark at the Kiwanis Spring Fair

Thursday, May 14, 2015

If eating some really unhealthy foods, playing games for prizes and going around and around on a giant wheel is on your to-do list this week then we have something in common. Those things actually always appear on …

The Insiders: Go to the library tonight to learn how to eat like a champ on the trails (without packing a Chinese buffet)

Tuesday, May 12, 2015

If we were going to make you a winter hike survival guide, it would include all the essentials: a full Chinese buffet for necessary sustenance and this column so you don’t forget to bring the Chinese buffet. Lucky …

The Insiders: Plants, crafts or films, there’s lots to choose from this Saturday

Saturday, May 9, 2015

It’s probably safe to assume you’ve already put on your big sun hat and little white gloves for a garden digging session. You’ve got to look good while pulling out all those annoying weeds. And now it’s about …

The Insiders: You’re all enrolled in Insider 101, and today’s assignment is checking out this faculty art show

Wednesday, May 6, 2015

We like to think of ourselves as the faculty of the Insider. It’s pretty much the same as teaching at a prestigious university, minus the summers off and the bucolic campus and the tweed blazers. Anyway, that would …

The Insiders: Our words may be recycled but the fun will be brand new

Saturday, May 2, 2015

The positive results of recycling have been well-documented for quite some time. You know, saving the planet, helping Mother Earth, all that stuff. Our stance on the action is the same; we think recycling is good. Sometimes we even get to recycle our own words for your benefit. …

The Insiders: Fill up on music and art tonight and still have room for breakfast

Thursday, April 30, 2015

Music and art, two essential parts of a balanced breakfast. Um, we mean, two essential parts of a truly deep cultural experience (you can see how we’d get the two mixed up). Tonight, you can have both! The …

The Insiders: It must be wildlife day in Concord with these two events

Wednesday, April 29, 2015

We all know that the red-tailed hawk got a bit of an undeserved bad rap earlier this year after the whole House of Representatives debacle. It isn’t the hawk’s fault. It’s actually a very beautiful creature once you …
