The Insiders: Your Insiders guide to trick-or-treating (which is really just us telling you what time it’s happening)

Thursday, October 30, 2014

Halloween has finally arrived, which means it’s time to put months and months of planning the perfect costume into action. We ultimately decided against dressing up as our first two ideas – an election ballot (we didn’t want to get jabbed at by random strangers all night) or Insider staffers (we didn’t want to get jabbed at by random strangers all night). We settled on Elsa from Frozen, because we …

The Insiders: Want some college students to do something zany? It only costs $1.

Thursday, October 30, 2014

Some of the best things in life are done off the cuff, spur of the moment and with no real plan. Like the time we thought it would be a good idea to play Matt and Luke Bonner two-on-two. Wait, that actually wasn’t all that great of an idea, but luckily there wasn’t enough time to be embarrassed on that fine summer day. …

The Insiders: This show at the Audi has our vote for what you should do tonight

Tuesday, October 28, 2014

The elections are officially less than a week away, so it’s time to get in the spirit of the political season by either recording a few spiteful, hate-filled television ads or by catching some politically themed musical theater. We’re going to go ahead and recommend the latter. We vote that you attend tonight’s presentation of Hail To The Chief, also known as The …

The Insiders: Stop working on your really old home and pitch in at the Audi

Wednesday, August 20, 2014

There’s a good chance many of you are living in houses that are at least 110 years old. This is New England, after all. The last brand-new house built within state lines is estimated at 1984 (estimation approximate …

The Insiders: Porkfest is definitely the best food-based festival in town today

Saturday, August 16, 2014

It should come as no surprise to you that most of our favorite festivals are food-based. Of course, not all of them are home runs. Prunefest didn’t quite work out the way we’d hoped, and we were forced to cancel Sardineapalooza after only a few minutes. But some …

The Insiders: Kids made art, now you can make a difference by visiting Bicentennial Square

Saturday, August 16, 2014

Art comes in many forms. For instance, when Keith tries to paint stuff – as he inexplicably has done twice for the Insider now – it comes in the form of awkward looking things. At today’s Concord Arts Market, though, there’s art of maybe the best kind. Art …

The Insiders: Red Rivers is adding sound to silent film and you should check it out

Thursday, August 14, 2014

When silent films were created, audiences were in awe. Now, a silent film has it’s place in history, but the thought of a movie created today without the use of sound is like making chocolate chip cookies without the chocolate chips. It just doesn’t make sense. So you …

The Insiders: Calling all volunteers, your presence is requested

Wednesday, August 13, 2014

It’s no secret we like to help people. Each week, we point you to the coolest events, share the funniest pictures and keep you up to date on all the happening things Concord has to offer. No need to thank us. As the great Superman once said, “All …

The Insiders: You can juggle chainsaws later; check out this movie at Red River tonight instead

Tuesday, August 12, 2014

Wednesday nights are good nights for a lot of things. Dinosaur hunting, chainsaw juggling and pudding eating contests are three of our favorite activities. But Wednesdays are also good for watching great movies, which we presume is why Red River Theatres established the Great Movies on Wednesday Evenings …

The Insiders: The Fresh Prince thinks you should have the Girl Scouts wash your car today

Saturday, August 9, 2014

Girl Scout cookie season may be over (unless you were smart like us and bought 237 boxes), but Girl Scout doing-stuff-to-make-your-life-easier season sure isn’t. At least it doesn’t seem to be, what with today’s Girl Scout Benefit Car Wash at Arnie’s Place at 164 Loudon Road. Between 10 …

The Insiders: Let the Knights of Columbus cook you some delicious chicken

Saturday, August 9, 2014

When the Knights of Columbus speak, you listen (do they speak, though? Are they a real thing?) And when they chicken barbecue, you most definitely also chicken barbecue. So guess what you’re doing this evening? Chicken barbecue! The Knights of Columbus are hosting their annual chicken barbecue event …

The Insiders: It’s movie day at the library, so why not go watch.

Thursday, August 7, 2014

Movie nights are just the best. How can you go wrong when your evening activity involves relaxing on a comfy piece of furniture with your favorite snacks and getting totally lost in an interesting tale for a couple hours? We equate it to the feeling most of you …

The Insiders: Meet Lucy Audubon – or at least someone who plays her.

Wednesday, August 6, 2014

We’ve all at one point or another wanted to go back in time. Who wouldn’t want to grab a pint at an old west saloon, roam the earth with dinosaurs (the vegetarian kind that is) or watch as the first pyramid takes shape. And of course go all …

The Insiders: Have puns of fun at the library tonight with the Ukeladies

Tuesday, August 5, 2014

This may come as a shock to you, but we utilize our fair share of puns (and sarcasm!) at the Insider. But sometimes we like it when someone takes care of a perfectly-crafted pun for us, and today happens to be one of those days, because the New …

The Insiders: To-do list: Feed your exotic pets, then enjoy National Night Out on Tuesday

Sunday, August 3, 2014

Here’s a quick look behind the curtain of the Insider date book for last night: nap, eat tacos, nap, walk and feed the ocelot, head out for a night on the town. But what about a night out …
