The Insiders: You don’t have to be lonely at the Penacook farmers market tomorrow

Saturday, July 25, 2015

If you’re like us, you wake up in the morning dreaming of eating fresh veggies, like pepperoni or pepper steak (we love almost everything in the pepper family, really). But you’re probably also thinking you missed your chance to hit up the local farmers market until next weekend. What if we told you that you could still get some super-fresh local stuff and even take all of today off? Yeah, …

The Insiders: Learn what breweriana is (we just did!) and then go check some of it out today

Saturday, July 25, 2015

Sometimes, there are weird words like breweriana. And sometimes those words are celebrating their 43rd annual convention in Concord today. That’s right, the Eastern Coast Breweriana Association’s 43rd annual convention is going on this weekend at the Grappone Conference Center, and the Breweriana Show is open to the public today from 10 a.m. …

The Insiders: It’s great day to get out there and walk for a good cause

Friday, July 24, 2015

If this was six months ago, the last thing we’d be telling you to do is go for a walk. We wouldn’t even recommend going outside. But since it’s summer, and there isn’t a ton of snow on the ground, it’s the perfect time for a little fresh air. Our sources have confirmed …

The Insiders: The emperor has some new clothes he’d like you to see at this dance recital tonight

Thursday, June 18, 2015

We think more people should nickname their children “The Emperor,” because those little rugrats will just not stop needing new clothes. It’s kind of ridiculous. Of course, walking the street introducing everyone to the emperor might earn you …

The Insiders: Check out these really sweet motorcycle tricks at Makris and then hitch a free ride.

Thursday, June 18, 2015

The thought of getting behind the handle bars of a motorcycle is a little terrifying for us and should be for all of you – that is if we actually got in the drivers seat and were able …

The Insiders: Rejected state motto or fun night of poetry? Find out at Slam Free or Die at Gibson’s tonight

Wednesday, June 17, 2015

Here’s a partial list of things we believe were rejected for New Hampshire’s state motto: Shovel for eight months free or die, vote for president before everyone else free or die, take your sales tax and shove it …

The Insiders: Trust us, the best part of this dance show at Concord High is that we’re not dancing in it

Friday, June 12, 2015

We’d be the first to willingly admit we weren’t exactly blessed with the rhythm gene. In fact, here’s a partial list of dance-related things we don’t have: vibes, style. But there are plenty of people in Concord who …

The Insiders: Head down to Gibson’s tonight if you’re looking for a good scare

Thursday, June 11, 2015

Let’s face it, we’re all afraid of ghosts. Even if you don’t believe they’re living in your attic, a strange noise in the middle of the night or scary movie will no doubt cause you to second guess …

The Insiders: Turns out you can get there from here – just go to Red River for today’s documentary

Wednesday, June 10, 2015

New England is associated with a ton of colloquial phrases, like “if you don’t like the weather, just wait 10 minutes,” and “they’re candlepins, dummy.” But one of the most famous might be “you can’t get there from …

The Insiders: This Road Warrior Foundation event is way cooler than anything you’d find in your box of cereal

Friday, June 5, 2015

It’s a special day, readers, and not just because we found the coolest trinket at the bottom of our box of Lucky Charms this morning. It’s not every day you get to say you took part in a …

The Insiders: This writing and yoga workshop is way better than your Sunday to-do list

Sunday, May 31, 2015

Things you are probably planning on doing today: mowing the lawn, getting the groceries, dropping the kids off, studying molecular physics, picking the kids up. More relaxing things you could be doing today instead: spending the afternoon at a writing and yoga workshop at At Om Yoga. We …

The Insiders: Dances like the ones you’ll see tonight from the Concord Dance Academy are numbered. Like, literally.

Thursday, May 28, 2015

We feel confident at this stage of our lives saying we’ve nailed the skills necessary for paint-by-numbers, so we’re pretty much professional artists now. Our dancing skills aren’t quite on par, though – which means someone should really …

The Insiders: Bird knowledge will be dropped at the 5 Rivers annual gathering tonight

Wednesday, May 27, 2015

Despite the urging from celebrated scholarly philosopher L.L. Cool J not to call it a comeback, we’re afraid that’s just what we’re going to do. How else to explain the triumphant return of the bald eagle to the Granite State? The best part is, we’re not going to …

The Insiders: It’s an independent film marathon at Concord High tonight

Wednesday, May 27, 2015

It sure is hard to get back into the swing of things after a long weekend. Like just about everybody else who enjoyed three straight days of never ending fun, it certainly takes us a good couple days …

The Insiders: Today is for grilling, tomorrow is for holiday parading

Saturday, May 23, 2015

It’s Memorial Day weekend, which you probably figured out Friday afternoon when it took you three hours to move 11 inches on the highway. Today, we celebrate burgers. But tomorrow, we celebrate the holiday itself by honoring those who died serving in our military, and Concord does its …
