The Insiders: It’s a holiday weekend, so get out and explore

Friday, August 29, 2014

So it’s the first day of a much needed holiday weekend and you’re looking for something fun to do. Well, you’ve come to the right place. We’re chock full of great ideas, as if you didn’t already know that. But instead of pointing you to just one place, why not make this an adventure day – and one that requires absolutely no money. Assuming you have gas (because you do … 0

The Insiders: Here’s your second chance to see ‘Northern Borders’ for the first time

Thursday, August 28, 2014

Jay Craven is a fan of the city of Concord. And it’s safe to say that the city feels the same way – well at least when it comes to his film, Northern Borders. Craven brought his movie to Red River Theatres earlier this month for what turned out to be a successful four-day stint during a tour of New England. And before … 0

The Insiders: Listen to some old music without the use of a time machine

Wednesday, August 27, 2014

Can you hear that? Those groovin’ sounds filling your ear canals are the very first practice of the newly formed Insiders, a classic rock band that consists of Keith on the keytar and kazoo, and Tim rocking out on the sarrusophone and trongos. And in the case that you actually can hear it, which would be incredible since we practice in a heavily … 0

The Insiders: Take the plunge and check out The River stage at Market Days

Thursday, July 17, 2014

Here’s a quick history lesson for you this morning: Did you know that, as with so many good jams, the old ditty about the little piggy going to market was actually edited so it could better fit into a pop radio format? The original first line told of … 0

The Insiders: Walk around Main Street today. It’s ok, it’s Market Days!

Wednesday, July 16, 2014

Now we’re not ones to advise you to pull a Matt Bonner and walk out into the middle of a busy street, merely for a picture with the NBA Championship trophy during a whirlwind tour of the city like he did last week. But since there will be … 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
