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 Sunday afternoon. Believe us, we know it’s hard not to become completely enamored with a group of investigators, who use keen detective … 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 upon to give deer, moose and ducks a good scratch under the chin. Nevertheless, when … 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 technically count, we have a better suggestion – make your way to Hermanos Cocina Mexicana … 0

The Insiders: We think you’ll dig these dig days

Wednesday, April 30, 2014

Today seems like a good day to play in the dirt (Little known fact: Every day is a good day to play in the dirt.) But today’s dirt activities could produce a righteous discovery or two, as part of the New Hampshire Division of Historical Resources “Dig Days,” … 0

The Insiders: Eat like it’s 1984 (and dress like it if you want to) at Hermanos’s birthday bash

Sunday, April 27, 2014

Everything was so much more affordable in 1984. Gas, milk, iPhones . . . you name it. Well, prepare to save some coin and celebrate at the same time today, as Hermanos Cocina Mexicana celebrates its 30th birthday … 0

The Insiders: This weather isn’t funny, but this show probably is

Friday, April 25, 2014

Today was supposed to be the day we told you to go to Bark in the Park at White Park, but thanks to a forecast of thunder and rain, that event has been postponed until the fall. You can still go bark in the park yourself, if you’d … 0

The Insiders: Get a good laugh at NHTI tonight

Friday, April 25, 2014

We all have our own way of looking at life. Some have a glass half full approach, while others view it as one that’s more of an empty drinking cup. At the Insider, we prefer to view it as an overflowing beer stein. For comedian/musician Stephen Lynch, he … 0

The Insiders: It’s a Jungian out there, or at least at NEC Concord tonight

Tuesday, April 22, 2014

We would never send you to meet a serial killer. That’s just bad business, as far as we’re concerned. But we would send you to a discussion about a book about the mindset of serial killers. In fact, that’s exactly what we’re doing right now. Aaron B. Daniels … 0

The Insiders: Peep these tasty Easter brunches

Saturday, April 19, 2014

Happy Easter, readers. Here’s hoping you’ve mowed through a couple of piles of candy, and also mowed all the fake green grass that has no doubt become the new turf in your living room. We spent our morning trying to host the first-ever bunny hunt, the obvious follow-up … 0

The Insiders: How many eggs can you fit in your basket?

Friday, April 18, 2014

With the Easter Bunny’s arrival less than 24 hours away, we can hardly contain our excitement. We’re talking setting up our own Easter egg hunts kind of excited. (Which FYI, doesn’t work because you already know where the eggs are.) But for all the kids out there, the … 0

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 … 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. … 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 … 0

The Insiders: Honor Mickey Rooney’s legacy, and that 80s song he may or may not have inspired

Sunday, April 13, 2014

Mickey Rooney, who died this month at 93, had a greatness that knew no bounds. Not many people can claim that they inspired both the creation of a world-famous mouse and a catchy 80s tune, among other career accomplishments. Rooney was also apparently in movies, and one of … 0

The Insiders: Get your Wiffle ball fix today at NHTI

Saturday, April 12, 2014

At the Insider, we love Wiffle ball. There’s nothing – and we mean nothing – better than the sweet sound of skinny yellow bats crushing hollow plastic balls and the hooting and hollering that goes along with it. And it just so happens that today is NHTI’s Annual … 0
