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 of the universe, too, music being the most obvious outlet. But you can swing by the Capitol Center tonight for a mashup … 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 scavenger hunt run by Gibson’s Bookstore this month – and there’s plenty of sweet swag … 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 dare you to show us a painting that can taste that good. But we’re not … 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

The Insiders: Play some games and win a prize at Kiwanis Club Spring Fair

Wednesday, May 14, 2014

Aren’t giant stuffed animals just the best? They’re soft, cuddly and can be used as a pillow or passenger in a carpool lane. Who cares that it usually requires spending a ridiculous amount of money to win one that can easily be bought at a local store for … 0

The Insiders: There’s no beating this Egg event at Gibson’s

Tuesday, May 13, 2014

Eggs have had a pretty topsy-turvy ride over the years.. First they were healthy, then they weren’t healthy, now they’re healthy again. For what it’s worth, we’re fans here at the Insider – not enough to recommend going all Rocky Balboa and downing a glass of raw ones, … 0

The Insiders: It’s a nice day, so enjoy it!

Sunday, May 11, 2014

It’s supposed to be a nice day. The weather report (if we can ever believe it) calls for mostly sunny with a high in the mid-70s. We know, it’s hard to believe, but it might be safe to say that spring has officially arrived. Hopefully we didn’t just … 0

The Insiders: Get healthy tips and eat great food

Saturday, May 10, 2014

On most days, walking down the middle of South Main Street would be dangerous and frowned upon. Like they always say, safety first. But today is a little different. That’s because a section of the street will be closed down for Concord Food Co-op’s biggest event of the … 0

The Insiders: Want a new house on Mars? Go to St. Paul’s and find out how

Thursday, May 8, 2014

Catching a ride to the moon is something we’ve been exploring as our next big story. So far we haven’t found anyone willing to let us tag along on their next mission to space, but we’re still holding out hope. Unfortunately, that doesn’t do much for your quest … 0

The Insiders: Let Kimball Jenkins into your home (figuratively, of course)

Wednesday, May 7, 2014

Sometimes we think the Insider pod could use a little sprucing up. When we’re not thinking that, generally we’re sleeping. Help is on the way, though, for us and everyone else, when the Crafting an Artful Home Interior Design Series continues at Kimball-Jenkins today with “Liven Up Your … 0

The Insiders: Slither on over to this Fish and Game discussion

Wednesday, May 7, 2014

When we heard there was going to be a reptile and amphibian lecture at the Fish and Game Department, we assumed we’d be hearing from all our favorite chatty luminaries like the Geico gecko and maybe Kermit the frog. Upon closer inspection, we were able to determine it’s … 0

The Insiders: Agile cats and laughter – say no more

Saturday, May 3, 2014

It’s hard not to smile when you see a cat. They’re cute, cuddly and do some pretty cool things. And if you head over to Everett Arena today, get ready for your face to hurt – from smiling, that is. It’s the second day of the Seacoast Club … 0

The Insiders: Want to learn to make beer at home? Here’s your chance

Friday, May 2, 2014

You might not know this, but today is a big one in the beer world. Just think about how many people from all over will be drinking their favorite tasty brews, doing their part to keep the business thriving. But that’s not why we’re talking about it. Because … 0

The Insiders: Warm up your bidding arm and burger naming brain for the Friends Auction

Thursday, May 1, 2014

There are certain lifetime achievements that indicate you have truly arrived, like purchasing a dream home (which isn’t the same as dreaming of purchasing a home). But few are a higher honor then having the opportunity to name a burger on a local restaurant’s menu. We’re not going … 0
