The Insiders: Fall falliage? Watch men in colorful heels march down Main Street tonight

Tuesday, September 30, 2014

Don’t look now, readers, but it’s October. That means all the leaves are about to turn a lovely shade of SO MUCH SNOW IN YOUR DRIVEWAY. Sorry, we fast forwarded a little bit there. There’s still plenty of time to enjoy the color, particularly the color of the high heels all the men are wearing on Main Street today. Wait, what? You heard us. Today is the Crisis Center of … 0

The Insiders: Concord continues its reign as king of all walks with today’s MS Journey of Hope

Saturday, September 27, 2014

We consider Concord the international pace-setter in several categories. Hair salons. Law offices. General John Stark statues. But it’s also becoming the world’s pre-eminent locale for walks. Official walks, we mean. The first official Mayor’s Walk was less than two weeks ago, the first Walk A Mile In Her Shoes event – where … 3

The Insiders: Become a detective like you read about at the library today

Saturday, September 27, 2014

If you’ve watched as many episodes of Law and Order as we have, you know certain things about the criminal justice process: Suspects love weaving recklessly through back alleys, major case breakthroughs usually follow dramatic violin interludes, and every couple of seasons you have to hire a new and more attractive assistant DA. Also, it’s always satisfying to wrap up a case. Well … 0

The Insiders: Share poetry and maybe learn ways to describe body parts at Gibson’s tonight

Wednesday, July 16, 2014

It’s the third Wednesday of the month, which can only mean one thing: There have already been two other Wednesdays in the month. Actually, it means two things, because it’s also the Poetry Society of New Hampshire’s poetry reading and open mic night at Gibson’s Bookstore at 7 … 0

The Insiders: Race for downtown to hear some cool music today and tomorrow

Saturday, July 12, 2014

Well, it’s Sunday the 13th, and we all know what that means, don’t we? Actually, it doesn’t really mean anything. But today is the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series Camping World RV Sales 301 race at New Hampshire Motor Speedway, which means there are a few things you don’t … 0

The Insiders: Check out the Contoocook River with the Penacook Historical Society

Saturday, July 12, 2014

It’s a Saturday in July so naturally you’re looking for something to do outside. That’s unless you hate beautiful weather and in that case we’ve got nothing for you except a recommendation to crank the air conditioner to … 0

The Insiders: It’s time to learn how to solve cases like the people on CSI

Friday, July 11, 2014

At one time or another, we’ve all gotten sucked into a marathon of CSI. Don’t try to deny it because that would be like saying you’ve never eaten straight out of the ice cream container. It’s just not true, although put together they would make for one great … 0

The Insiders: Walk with the Animals, or at least sign up to do so

Wednesday, July 9, 2014

As you may well know, we love animals. It’s almost to the point of obsession. Like where we can’t even walk down the street cause we want to photograph and pet just about each one we come across. And it’s only because from what we understand it’s frowned … 0

The Insiders: Want to hear a vibraphone? Then check out Hermanos tonight

Tuesday, July 8, 2014

It’s Wednesday and what better way to help you get over the hump than a little music to melt the night away. While driving down Main Street with the windows wide open and the latest grooving sounds that kids listen to these days blaring from your iPod does … 0

The Insiders: Turns out Waldo has been in downtown Concord this whole time

Saturday, July 5, 2014

Here’s hoping you survived the first two-thirds of the July 4 weekend (and have returned to a state of relative dryness following Friday’s waterlogging). Today should most definitely be a day of rest and relaxation, so we dug up an activity you can do on your own time … 0

The Insiders: We have a sixth sense that says you want to do this 4k on the 4th even though it’s the 5th

Friday, July 4, 2014

July 4, like any good American holiday, tends to be rich in things like calories and shoving grilled foods into our faces. With that comes the inevitable hangover and self-loathing the day after (depending on your situation, this phenomenon may or may not be tied to holidays only). … 0

The Insiders: Enjoy the Fourth with fun, food and fireworks

Friday, July 4, 2014

It’s the Fourth of July – a day to relax, soak up some rays and chow down on plenty of delicious grilled meats and other foods that you’re not typically allowed to stuff your face with. And what … 0

The Insiders: Animals don’t live in penthouse condos, but your children can learn where they actually do live

Wednesday, July 2, 2014

Dogs are among the only animals lucky enough to have their own houses, assuming that dog houses are still actually a thing. Of course, they get to live in your house, and usually end up running the place – unless there’s a cat on the premises. Everyone knows … 0

The Insiders: Sign up to pull a fire truck – then hit the gym

Tuesday, July 1, 2014

It’s not every day you get to pull a fire truck down Main Street. But today is a day where you can sign up to try it. Registration is open for the third annual Fire Truck Pull and with the Saturday of Market Days (July 19) event being … 0

The Insiders: Your mom told us to tell you to go play outside today

Friday, June 27, 2014

Remember when you were young and your mother would tell you it was a beautiful day and to go play outside? That was just so she could get you out of her hair to enjoy seven or eight minutes of peace and quiet. You can’t really blame her. … 0
