The Insiders: Read this column, but probably don’t suggest it at tomorrow’s Gibson’s Book Club planning event

Saturday, August 1, 2015

It’s a pretty rewarding feeling to be on the ground floor of something wildly successful. That’s why we opened a new business called “Wildly Successful” and built it entirely on one level. That way everyone gets to experience it! You can have a similar experience tomorrow night without ever stepping foot in our (not a real thing) business venture when the Gibson’s Book Club meets to map out another year …

The Insiders: Get off the couch and help out a couple worthwhile causes today

Saturday, August 1, 2015

Happy August everyone. It’s hard to believe that July is over and September is not far away, but let’s enjoy the time we have with the eighth month of the year while it’s here. Now we have a couple of worthwhile causes for you to support this weekend. From 11 a.m. to 4 …

The Insiders: We’ll explain how baby musicals are made, but only if you promise to see Legally Blonde, Jr. tonight

Thursday, July 30, 2015

This is a conversation we should probably have had some time ago, but it’s time for us to sit down and explain how some productions are made. You see, there’s the birds and the bees and sometimes two scripts fall in love, and then another script is made, which we assume is how …

The Insiders: Plants, crafts or films, there’s lots to choose from this Saturday

Saturday, May 9, 2015

It’s probably safe to assume you’ve already put on your big sun hat and little white gloves for a garden digging session. You’ve got to look good while pulling out all those annoying weeds. And now it’s about …

The Insiders: You’re all enrolled in Insider 101, and today’s assignment is checking out this faculty art show

Wednesday, May 6, 2015

We like to think of ourselves as the faculty of the Insider. It’s pretty much the same as teaching at a prestigious university, minus the summers off and the bucolic campus and the tweed blazers. Anyway, that would …

The Insiders: Our words may be recycled but the fun will be brand new

Saturday, May 2, 2015

The positive results of recycling have been well-documented for quite some time. You know, saving the planet, helping Mother Earth, all that stuff. Our stance on the action is the same; we think recycling is good. Sometimes we even get to recycle our own words for your benefit. …

The Insiders: Fill up on music and art tonight and still have room for breakfast

Thursday, April 30, 2015

Music and art, two essential parts of a balanced breakfast. Um, we mean, two essential parts of a truly deep cultural experience (you can see how we’d get the two mixed up). Tonight, you can have both! The …

The Insiders: It must be wildlife day in Concord with these two events

Wednesday, April 29, 2015

We all know that the red-tailed hawk got a bit of an undeserved bad rap earlier this year after the whole House of Representatives debacle. It isn’t the hawk’s fault. It’s actually a very beautiful creature once you …

The Insiders: Need a vacation from school vacation? Check out this Buskers Night at the Audi

Wednesday, April 29, 2015

It’s school vacation week, as parents out there no doubt know well, which means the rugrats have been running around untethered for a few days already. So maybe it’s time to leave them home by themselves for a …

The Insiders: Today we invent Netflix spinoffs, tomorrow you watch this screening at Red River

Saturday, April 25, 2015

So apparently Vetflix is a thing. It’s an organization teaming up with Red River Theatres to bring you a free showing of Last Days in Vietnam tomorrow. More on that in a minute. But first we thought it would be fun to riff on the Vetflix thing and …

The Insiders: Watch Keith get bit by a dog in a very safe way

Friday, April 24, 2015

So one of us is going to be attacked by a dog today. And in the interest of full disclosure, it’s Keith. But don’t worry, Keith will be fine cause he’s going to have one those big puffy bite suits. Keith, along with Nazzy and Mark Hayward from …

The Insiders: Make it the Fullest House by coming to see Dave Coulier at NHTI tonight

Friday, April 24, 2015

There was big news the other day for fans of super cheesy ’90s sitcoms (which is everyone): one of the most memorable of them all is getting a reboot. Full House will be back as Fuller House, which, …

The Insiders: How do woodcocks find a mate? Go to the Audubon tonight and see for yourself.

Thursday, April 23, 2015

Some in the birding community insist that spring has not arrived until you see the woodcock do its annual courtship flight. Or at least they say something along those lines. Well, we say get ready for spring to …

The Insiders: Do a little signing and catch a flick at the library

Saturday, April 18, 2015

If there’s one thing that just doesn’t translate well in our writing, it’s got to be our singing ability. When it comes to belting out the latest and greatest tunes, we’re somewhere on the scale between bad and average. Our true bread and butter really lies in movie …

The Insiders: Don’t let the outdoors hit you on the way out this afternoon. But seriously, get outdoors today

Saturday, April 18, 2015

They always say, if you give a man a fish, you’ll feed him for a day; but teach a man to fish and he’ll come home with a million bug bites and a lobster-red sunburn and maybe a …
