The Insiders: Check out a parade that’s not in your living room today to celebrate Concord 250

Saturday, August 15, 2015

The weekend parade you’re most used to has got to be the parade of random kids that come through your house on any given Sunday. Seriously, how do your children even know that many people? Do they bus them in? Today, though, it’s time for an actual parade, one that will wind through Concord’s streets to wrap up the week-long Concord 250 celebration. The Concord Through the Ages 250th Anniversary …

The Insiders: Catch some basketball, beats, Bonners and booms at Rock On Fest today

Saturday, August 15, 2015

If we were going to map out a pretty perfect summer Saturday, it would probably include basketball, some cool live music, fireworks, all-you-can-eat tacos and the Bonner brothers. Well, if you can live without the tacos, we’ve actually just mapped out this afternoon for you. The Concord 250 celebration kicks into high gear …

The Insiders: Hit happy hour if you want to, but then kick the weekend off for realz with this Nevers Band show

Thursday, August 13, 2015

If you’re like us, you kick off the weekend by sliding life-like mannequins into your office chair around 2:30 in the afternoon and heading for the nearest happy hour (Bonus tip: Sell the ruse extra hard by playing a recording of clacking keyboard keys). The people behind Concord 250 kick off the weekend …

The Insiders: Peek back in time without a Delorean at today’s time capsule opening

Wednesday, July 8, 2015

In our experience, ice cream is almost always the headliner. Think about it – there aren’t many things that could share real estate with cake and still be considered the highlight. Today, though, ice cream is merely the appetizer (personally, we think that’s how more meals should work), …

The Insiders: If you can’t make it to space this weekend, got to Aerospacefest instead

Wednesday, July 8, 2015

We’d love to go to space, but unfortunately it’s not exactly something we can write off on our monthly travel expenses. Good thing the McAuliffe- Shepard Discovery Center gives you all the feelings of orbiting the Earth, just …

The Insiders: Kimball-Jenkins is hosting a fairy house build, need we say more?

Wednesday, July 8, 2015

Sure, there’s lots of things to do on a nice Sunday in June. You could spend time in your garden, take a ride to the beach to soak in some rays or sit down and rank your favorite Insider stories from the previous month. But what if we …

The Insiders: There’s a music festival in Concord today, do we really need to say any more?

Wednesday, July 8, 2015

Live music is kind of a thing in Concord. From the Capitol Center for the Arts and True Brew to Hermanos and Penuche’s, there’s pretty much somewhere to go on any given night to catch a local show. …

The Insiders: Hit up Gibson’s this afternoon to learn about George H. W. Bush, then get ready for Bush vs. Clinton 2036

Wednesday, July 8, 2015

Politics season is the only season that happens more frequently and lasts longer than winter around here, and we’re right in the middle of it right now. And politics season can mean only one thing: time to talk …

The Insiders: It’s the final day of Market Days, so don’t miss out.

Wednesday, July 8, 2015

We know this is going to be a little sad for all of you to hear, but we have to tell you – this is the final day of Market Days. The good news though is that you …

The Insiders: Hall & Oates would totally go to this printmaking demo at Mill Brook Gallery tonight

Wednesday, July 8, 2015

When you can get two titans in any particular field together, the results are usually good. Think about it – nobody wants some Hall without any Oates. And can we just stop for a minute to recognize the …

The Insiders: It’s almost time to celebrate America’s independence so rest up

Friday, July 3, 2015

We hope that most of you are rereading this in your swim suit and arm floaties as you ramp up to celebrate America’s independence. It’s never too early to get ready, especially when arm floaties are involved. And …

The Insiders: Go to Gibson’s tonight for this novel discussion and maybe find a quote from us on a book jacket

Wednesday, July 1, 2015

You know you’ve officially arrived when you’re a person quoted on a book jacket. It’s an even bigger representation of said arrival when the quote is actually printed on the book jacket and not just scribbled there with …

The Insiders: It’s the first day of July and St. Paul’s is hosting a blood drive

Wednesday, July 1, 2015

In case it slipped your mind, let us be the first to officially welcome you to July. We’re expecting it to be quite a month ’cause things can really get crazy as the summer fun sets in. But …

The Insiders: Get rested and hydrated, it’s time for Market Days, day two

Thursday, June 25, 2015

We’re sure you spent all Thursday taking in the wonders that Market Days has to offer (because we assume you’re not against having fun), and we hope you drank plenty of fluids and got a good night’s sleep, …

The Insiders: It’s the start of Market Days, need we say more?

Wednesday, June 24, 2015

If you plan on taking a cruise down Main Street this afternoon, you might want to reconsider. You’ll probably be stuck in traffic for a while – like until late Saturday night. Instead, we urge you to go …
