The Insiders: Meet the library’s new telescope and finally learn what you’ve been looking at

Wednesday, October 22, 2014

Have you ever just stood outside, staring at the night sky and wondering what you’re looking at? Well join the club because all of those groupings of stars sure do look a lot alike – that is unless someone who knows what they’re talking about carefully points the constellations out to you, such as the members of the New Hampshire Astronomical Society. And it just so happens the group of …

The Insiders: The Walker Lecture Series is playing the hand it’s dealt; which in this case is the Three of Cups

Tuesday, October 21, 2014

The experienced poker players out there know the agony of being defeated by the dreaded three of cups. It can really ruin your night. Thankfully, it’s much more pleasant in music form, which is how you can hear it this evening as part of the Walker Lecture Series at the Concord City Auditorium. …

The Insiders: Make Strides and be part of the most uplifting traffic jam ever

Sunday, October 19, 2014

Traffic jams rarely inspire warm feelings, unless you count the burning fire of road rage as “warm.” Or unless those traffic jams are caused by people and not cars. Roughly 5,000 people wearing pink, to be exact. There will be some serious pedestrian traffic leaving Memorial Field and trekking through Concord this afternoon as part of the 22nd annual Making Strides Against Breast …

The Insiders: The Fresh Prince thinks you should have the Girl Scouts wash your car today

Saturday, August 9, 2014

Girl Scout cookie season may be over (unless you were smart like us and bought 237 boxes), but Girl Scout doing-stuff-to-make-your-life-easier season sure isn’t. At least it doesn’t seem to be, what with today’s Girl Scout Benefit Car Wash at Arnie’s Place at 164 Loudon Road. Between 10 …

The Insiders: Let the Knights of Columbus cook you some delicious chicken

Saturday, August 9, 2014

When the Knights of Columbus speak, you listen (do they speak, though? Are they a real thing?) And when they chicken barbecue, you most definitely also chicken barbecue. So guess what you’re doing this evening? Chicken barbecue! The Knights of Columbus are hosting their annual chicken barbecue event …

The Insiders: It’s movie day at the library, so why not go watch.

Thursday, August 7, 2014

Movie nights are just the best. How can you go wrong when your evening activity involves relaxing on a comfy piece of furniture with your favorite snacks and getting totally lost in an interesting tale for a couple hours? We equate it to the feeling most of you …

The Insiders: Meet Lucy Audubon – or at least someone who plays her.

Wednesday, August 6, 2014

We’ve all at one point or another wanted to go back in time. Who wouldn’t want to grab a pint at an old west saloon, roam the earth with dinosaurs (the vegetarian kind that is) or watch as the first pyramid takes shape. And of course go all …

The Insiders: Have puns of fun at the library tonight with the Ukeladies

Tuesday, August 5, 2014

This may come as a shock to you, but we utilize our fair share of puns (and sarcasm!) at the Insider. But sometimes we like it when someone takes care of a perfectly-crafted pun for us, and today happens to be one of those days, because the New …

The Insiders: To-do list: Feed your exotic pets, then enjoy National Night Out on Tuesday

Sunday, August 3, 2014

Here’s a quick look behind the curtain of the Insider date book for last night: nap, eat tacos, nap, walk and feed the ocelot, head out for a night on the town. But what about a night out …

The Insiders: Catch up with a bunch of your favorite characters, non-Insider staff division, tonight at the Capitol Center

Thursday, July 31, 2014

We’re a big fan of mashups, especially when they involve delicious foods. Peanut butter and chocolate, pretzels and chocolate, strawberries and chocolate, dark chocolate and chocolate – we’d eat pretty much any of those (confession: we’re eating most of them right now). But mashups work in other realms …

The Insiders: So where is Waldo, really? Tonight he’s at Gibson’s, with some sweet prizes for you

Wednesday, July 30, 2014

It used to be that finding Waldo in the midst of a crowd featuring only people that looked and dressed almost exactly like each other produced little more than personal satisfaction in terms of payoff. No more! For tonight is the wrap-up party for the downtown Concord Waldo …

The Insiders: Head over to the library and get a lesson in homebrewing

Tuesday, July 29, 2014

It’s no secret how much we appreciate beer. Well, maybe love is a better word to describe it. With all the different variations, styles and flavor combinations, making beer should really be considered an art form – just one that also happens to be quite delicious. And we …

The Insiders: This paddle trip with Five Rivers ought to float your boat

Saturday, July 26, 2014

There’s no truth to the rumor that the script for A River Runs Through It was originally penned about Concord, or that we were originally considered for the role played by Brad Pitt. In fact, there’s no such rumor at all. But the fact of the matter is …

The Insiders: It’s an anniversary party and you’re invited

Wednesday, July 23, 2014

It’s been 40 years since the Pierce Brigade officially saved the Pierce Manse from demolition and opened the estate to the public. And what better way to mark the milestone then with a good ol’ celebration. For those of you who may not know, Franklin Pierce has a …

The Insiders: You’re invited to Batman’s birthday party at Red River Theatres

Tuesday, July 22, 2014

Batman is like James Bond in that he’s not actually a thing (sorry, spoiler alert). But also in the fact that in both instances, different generations identify with different leading men. When it comes to the Caped Crusader, viewers of a certain age – a group the Insider …
