The Insiders: Spring is in full swing at the League of N.H. Craftsmen

Thursday, March 26, 2015

With the temperatures slowly rising and the snowbanks melting at a similar pace, it’s hard not to think spring. Like us, you probably have a mild case of spring fever. And that, coincidentally, just happens to be the title of the latest League of N.H. Craftsmen exhibit. Tonight is also the opening reception for the exhibit at the League Headquarters, …

The Insiders: Ain’t no ‘keg party like this Amoskeag Manufacturing party at the Pierce Manse

Wednesday, March 25, 2015

We feel we’ve been somewhat misle d by movies we’ve seen over the years. Isn’t everything in the movies supposed to be true? Like, shouldn’t flying cars be a thing by now? Also, anyone that watched John Travolta and Nicholas Cage in the true cinematic classic Face/Off would expect we could put human …

The Insiders: Make sure you come see how this country music stacks up at the Audi tonight

Tuesday, March 24, 2015

We’ve spent some time covering cup stacking at the Insider (thanks Mr. Jim!), and we’re big on newspaper stacking (it’s the only way to get our paper into those little boxes downtown. We found balling them up and shoving them in there to be less effective). But what about Shana stacking? That’s not …

The Insiders: Goodbye 2014, hello 2015

Wednesday, December 31, 2014

Well, after officially closing the books on 2014 last night with what we can only assume was one raucous evening of confetti, loud counting and a resolution that you may or may not remember, it’s time to embrace all that 2015 has to offer. It’s hard to believe …

The Insiders: You can’t spell 2015 without 2-5-0. Well, if you spelled numbers, anyway

Wednesday, December 31, 2014

Concord is inching closer to its 250th birthday, and while we’re out trying to find a cake big enough to fit all those candles (and an industrial strength fan to blow them all out), you can ring in …

The Insiders: Enjoy a night at the theater in London, in Concord (trust us, it’s a real thing)

Saturday, December 27, 2014

Concord is just like London in a lot of ways, don’t you think? They’re both in an England (ours is just newer, apparently), they both have famous clocks (we named our Eagle Square version Comparatively Diminutive Ben) and both have bridges that are falling down (see you in …

The Insiders: Here’s how not to be a huge jerk while returning all your Christmas gifts

Thursday, December 25, 2014

Happy National Return Stuff Day! That’s not a real recognized holiday – yet – but anyone who has ever worked in retail will tell you it might as well be. Today is the day that 50 percent of all Christmas shopping gets done all over again when people …

The Insiders: Throw on those Santa jammies and a movie cause it’s Christmas Eve

Tuesday, December 23, 2014

So this is it. One final day before Santa pushes that big round belly down your chimney and the clock is ticking. Tick-tock, tick-tock. If you’re like us, there’s lots to do. You’ve got to wrap those last-minute presents that are still on your to-do list to buy. …

The Insiders: Enjoy tons of great holiday music today, no helmet required

Saturday, December 20, 2014

The way we see it, there’s two ways you can tackle today: put on full football pads and a helmet and brave the shopping centers, or put on your listening pants and hear some relaxing holiday music (If you are doing some shopping, we could use some new …

The Insiders: Cross the Nutcracker off your holiday to-do list

Thursday, December 18, 2014

There are just certain things you must do during the holiday season. Making a gingerbread house and then eating the entire thing in one sitting is No. 1 on our list. Dressing up like an elf and doing a one-man caroling routine around the neighborhood is another, as …

The Insiders: Music and art in one place? You got to check this out

Wednesday, December 17, 2014

If you haven’t noticed, we’re pretty big fans of music and art. Like screaming as the tour bus passes by kind of fans. But we’re sad to report that we’re not all that good at either one of them, which is why when we heard that the Concord …

The Insiders: Your Christmas shopping (for us) can wait, there’s magic at Red River tonight

Wednesday, December 17, 2014

We could tell you to go to a dozen places in Concord today (to pick up our dry cleaning, to grab us a coffee, to head to the office so we don’t have to), but you know what you really should be doing: Christmas shopping! We’ve just emailed …

The Insiders: Are you feeling potlucky, punk? Then stop by the Audi

Sunday, December 14, 2014

Things get busy this time of year. There are only 10 shopping days left until Christmas, which means you only have nine left to waste, so the pace of life understandably quickens. That makes it hard to find the motivation to make dinner after really busy days. Well, …

The Insiders: Cookie walks are the best kind of walks (Note: not a medical statement.)

Saturday, December 13, 2014

We like cookies. Do you like cookies? That’s not a real question. Since you’re a human person, we know the answer is yes. Well, just like exercise is so highly recommended they invented official walks to encourage it, they’ve done the same with cookies! And there are three …

The Insiders: Don’t miss this performance of the 12 Days of Christmas

Thursday, December 11, 2014

Now if we went purely by the lyrics of the holiday song, we can’t officially begin the Christmas celebration until Sunday because of the whole 12-day rule. But what’s the fun in that? Plus if we wait till then, we’d all be missing out on tonight’s performance of …
