The Insiders: Fling something besides your frustrating clubs at this Beaver Meadow FlingGolf demo

Saturday, September 13, 2014

We’ve played fling golf plenty of times. You probably know it well, too – it’s when you hit a drive 18 feet to your right that lands in the golf course neighbor’s shrubs and you fling your club through their kitchen window. Isn’t it? Actually, no, it isn’t. At least not officially. FlingGolf is a growing sport in which you fling a golf ball with a FlingStick, which loosely resembles … 0

The Insiders: Take a bunch of steps for animalkind at tomorrow’s SPCA Walk For The Animals

Friday, September 12, 2014

If you thought your morning trips to the park with your four-legged companion counted as walks for the animals, you’ve been sorely mistaken. We mean, really – your four-legged companion doesn’t even have a dog. No, the real Walk For The Animals is tomorrow morning, as the annual SPCA fundraiser begins with registration at 9:30 a.m. at Northeast Delta Dental. It’s a day … 0

The Insiders: The town’s already been painted, all you have to do now is bid on some awesome art at Kimball-Jenkins

Thursday, September 11, 2014

We figured we’d start today with a legal disclaimer: Sometimes the words we use are event names and not actual instructions. For instance, tonight is the third annual Paint the Town Art Auction at Kimball-Jenkins, which is a thing you should go to and not a thing you should do (besides, you’d need an awful lot of paint to put a full coat … 0

The Insiders: The ospreys aren’t a football team, but you can learn about them anyway at the Audubon

Wednesday, September 10, 2014

If we said the word “ospreys,” it might not immediately stir tremendous excitement. We actually first thought it was the name of the newest professional football franchise. But what if we said “fish-eating raptor” instead? That moves the needle a little, eh? Well, you can learn about ospreys, … 0

The Insiders: Rubber ducks and a regatta for your Sunday

Saturday, September 6, 2014

We would hope you were reading this column yesterday, but just in case you weren’t, we’ll give you a quick recap: pun, pun, joke, Weekend on the Water, jokey pun joke. We bring this up because while we … 0

The Insiders: Weekend on the Water is where it’s at, and by it we mean dragon boats and a beer garden

Friday, September 5, 2014

Given that you live in New Hampshire, you’ve probably spotted dragonflies near your garden at some point this year. Well, that’s nothing – this weekend you can find dragon boats near your beer garden. That’s a pretty major improvement, if you ask us. It’s all at the second … 0

The Insiders: This art at McGowan totally rocks

Thursday, September 4, 2014

We’ve been compared to hunks of granite more than once, but usually only when we dress up likes hunks of granite for Halloween. Good thing we only wear the costumes one night a year, though, or Gary Haven Smith may have tried to sculpt us. You can see … 0

The Insiders: It’s your night to become a dancing fool

Wednesday, September 3, 2014

Dancing is kind of like riding a bull. It can be a little rough at first with many falls and embarrassing moments, but once you get the hang of it, the experience can be quite euphoric – that is until you get a horn in the ribs. So … 0

The Insiders: The air is conditioned and the screen is showing cool stuff at Red River

Tuesday, September 2, 2014

Labor Day weekend is said to mark the unofficial end to summer, but if you happened to have spent more than 15 seconds outside in the last few days, you’ve noticed the emphasis is still heavy on the unofficial part. It’s warm enough to cook an egg on … 0

The Insiders: Get your tickets to the (actual) gun show

Saturday, August 30, 2014

We told ourselves that we wouldn’t start today’s column by flexing sarcastically and offering two tickets to the gun show, but who are we kidding? Of course that’s how we’re going to start it. Really, though, you can get however many tickets you want to the gun show, … 2

The Insiders: It’s a holiday weekend, so get out and explore

Friday, August 29, 2014

So it’s the first day of a much needed holiday weekend and you’re looking for something fun to do. Well, you’ve come to the right place. We’re chock full of great ideas, as if you didn’t already know that. But instead of pointing you to just one place, … 0

The Insiders: Here’s your second chance to see ‘Northern Borders’ for the first time

Thursday, August 28, 2014

Jay Craven is a fan of the city of Concord. And it’s safe to say that the city feels the same way – well at least when it comes to his film, Northern Borders. Craven brought his movie to Red River Theatres earlier this month for what turned … 0

The Insiders: Listen to some old music without the use of a time machine

Wednesday, August 27, 2014

Can you hear that? Those groovin’ sounds filling your ear canals are the very first practice of the newly formed Insiders, a classic rock band that consists of Keith on the keytar and kazoo, and Tim rocking out on the sarrusophone and trongos. And in the case that … 0

The Insiders: See Barry Steelman in the Insider and then catch a movie with him at Red River

Tuesday, August 26, 2014

Dedicated fans that you are, we don’t have to tell you that the latest issue of the Insider hits newsstands today (if you’re reading this late because you spent all morning sleeping next to one of our downtown boxes so you could be first to grab a copy, … 1
