The Insiders: Check out a parade that’s not in your living room today to celebrate Concord 250

Saturday, August 15, 2015

The weekend parade you’re most used to has got to be the parade of random kids that come through your house on any given Sunday. Seriously, how do your children even know that many people? Do they bus them in? Today, though, it’s time for an actual parade, one that will wind through Concord’s streets to wrap up the week-long Concord 250 celebration. The Concord Through the Ages 250th Anniversary …

The Insiders: Catch some basketball, beats, Bonners and booms at Rock On Fest today

Saturday, August 15, 2015

If we were going to map out a pretty perfect summer Saturday, it would probably include basketball, some cool live music, fireworks, all-you-can-eat tacos and the Bonner brothers. Well, if you can live without the tacos, we’ve actually just mapped out this afternoon for you. The Concord 250 celebration kicks into high gear …

The Insiders: Hit happy hour if you want to, but then kick the weekend off for realz with this Nevers Band show

Thursday, August 13, 2015

If you’re like us, you kick off the weekend by sliding life-like mannequins into your office chair around 2:30 in the afternoon and heading for the nearest happy hour (Bonus tip: Sell the ruse extra hard by playing a recording of clacking keyboard keys). The people behind Concord 250 kick off the weekend …

The Insiders: It’s dad’s day, so get out there and do something with the fam

Wednesday, July 8, 2015

It’s a big day for all you dads out there. This might be the one 24-hour block of time all year where whatever you says go. Use the power wisely. And even though there’s a chance of Mother Nature raining on your parade there’s still no reason to …

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 …
