The Insiders: Run all 5 of these Ks with NHTI and Northeast Delta Dental

Thursday, April 17, 2014

Today is a day to put the K in canine, which doesn’t make any sense. But it would have made even less sense to call a race a 5canine, so work with us a little. Anyway, all this babble is hurting our teeth, so we’ll just cut straight to the point – this evening is the NHTI/Delta Dental 5K at Northeast Delta Dental. And it’s the 10th annual! So come … 0

The Insiders: Learn the ins and outs of fighting like a theatre professional

Thursday, April 17, 2014

We sure do love free stuff. Whether it’s pizza, candy or smiles, it’s all good with us. And tonight, NHTI is using its Wings of Knowledge series to give all of you something for no cost, and it comes in the form of nationally renowned teacher David Leong. Leong is legendary in the theatrical world for his ability to create intense choreography routines. … 0

The Insiders: It’s our inaugural attempt to welcome an inaugural poet to Concord

Tuesday, April 15, 2014

The English language can be a confusing thing sometimes, even to those of us who don’t speak another one. Many phrases can be misleading without some context. Like all-you-can-eat, for instance – turns out most establishments apply that guarantee only to one meal, even if you sleep at the table and wake up for breakfast arguing that it’s still the same sitting. Anyway, … 0

The Insiders: Love is in the air in Concord

Tuesday, February 4, 2014

It’s never too early to plan a romantic moment for that special someone in your life. Especially when it comes to Valentine’s Day. And with the holiday just over a week away, there’s not much time left to pull off a surprise they will never forget. So why … 0

The Insiders: Bid those Super Bowl calories farewell before you even say hello

Saturday, February 1, 2014

Hope you’re feeling super today, readers. Or perhaps you’re just feeling bowl; either way, we presume you can tell what we’re fumbling our way toward saying before we hand the day off to you. It’s football pun day! … 0

The Insiders: Get hypnotized and wind up at Mardi Gras, right here in Concord

Saturday, February 1, 2014

We’ve never been hypnotized before, as far as we know. We do have this recurring thing where we bark whenever someone claps their hands, but a hypnotist friend of ours says that’s totally normal and not the likely result of a sneaky hypnotism he may or may not … 0

The Insiders: Stop off at CCMS to hear some Beethoven tonight, dog

Thursday, January 30, 2014

You’ve probably heard of Beethoven. He’s that really big dog that starred in those movies from the ’90s. But apparently there was also some guy named Beethoven who made music, and was also from the ’90s – the 1790s. It’s that Beethoven (we think) who has provided the … 0

The Insiders: We think you should pick this Mary Pickford film tonight

Thursday, January 30, 2014

We always sort of thought Meryl Streep was Hollywood’s first leading lady. Seriously, didn’t they invent the Academy Awards for her, so she wouldn’t have to be the one to keep commissioning statues to put on her trophy room shelves? That kind of repeated expense adds up. Turns … 0

The Insiders: Bug Nights for citizen scientists

Wednesday, January 29, 2014

It’s been hyped as “there’s no better place on the globe.” Now it’s up to you to determine if that’s just crafty advertising or the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth. Bug Nights – offered by the Upper Merrimack Monitoring Program for the 18th year … 0

The Insiders: All-you-can-eat pizza? Challenge accepted

Saturday, January 25, 2014

Four of our favorite words in the English language, when strung together at least, are all-you-can-eat. Assuming, of course, that the word following it is not anchovies or peas. But pizza? Now you’re talking. Actually, we’re talking, and we’re talking about this afternoon’s all-you-can-eat pizza fundraiser at South … 2

The Insiders: Fun facts to get you ready for day 2 of the Black Ice Tournament

Friday, January 24, 2014

Rise and shine, readers, it’s day two of the Black Ice Pond Hockey Tournament. You no doubt spend all of yesterday out there watching frostbite set in for the athletes taking part, and you can do the same this afternoon. But before we get into all the excitement … 0

The Insiders: If you love hockey, then White Park is the place to be

Thursday, January 23, 2014

We understand that it’s freezing outside and the last thing you want to do is go outside. Believe us, we’re right there with you. But this is New Hampshire and the harsh truth is that we all must leave our homes at some point this winter. You can’t … 0

The Insiders: Get that little slice of spring at McGowan

Thursday, January 23, 2014

What is better than the smell of fresh cut flowers on a cold winter day? Give up? So did we. That’s why you need to head over to McGowan Fine Art tonight. The 12th annual Art & Bloom extravaganza is a little slice of spring when we all … 0

The Insiders: What kind of gift do you buy for a 250th birthday party?

Tuesday, January 21, 2014

Two-hundred-and fifty years old is pretty old. Think about it – you can probably only remember one or two teachers in grade school who were that old. You couldn’t tell from looking at it, but our fair city is about to reach that significant milestone. Well, in 2015. … 0

The Insiders: Time for your monthly busking appointment

Saturday, January 18, 2014

We think it’s a good idea to busk at least once a month. That’s not an addition to a good hygiene regimen, although it does sound a little like an aftershave (Busk, by Faberge.) No, for a handful of local musicians and the public, busking is an opportunity … 0
