Summer and the Next Season’s Selection

b
Our season on sale is coming up, and it looks amazing so far! I’ve only been here a couple months now but I love seeing our producers at work, culling together incredible lists of acts and events. I come from a literary background, but I’m so excited to dive into the upcoming music, comedy, and movies too!

It’s the sweetest time of the year

gingerbread

It’s that time of year again, it’s time for me to pull out my baking pans, remember how to use my oven, and start building my Gingerbread House. For those of you who know me personally, or have been following this blog for awhile, you know that I take this competition very seriously, I’m even a member of the committee that runs the competition. I’ve built a first draft of my model, I’ve reached out to expert bakers for tips and tricks (and I want to send a very big THANK YOU to Popovers on the Square for ALLLLLLL of their help!), and roped in some coworkers.

Portsmouth, NH: On the Meetings Map

rental

When it comes to meetings and events, studies show—and meeting planners know—that “authenticity” is more than a buzzword.  For today’s attendees, having an authentic experience is the key to success. This means feeling a sense of place, eating local farm to fork food, and having time to explore the neighborhood.

The Music Hall’s Best-Kept Secret

balcony

Why do I love sitting in the balcony at the Historic Theater? Let me count the ways. The sweeping vista of the gorgeous Music Hall interior, from crystal chandelier to historic stage, is unsurpassed. Nearly all the seats have this dazzling view, even in the side rows. Because of the steep pitch of the rows, shorter people like me have clear sightlines from every seat, irregardless if tall people sit in front of us. The acoustics are excellent. There’s an intimacy with the artists, as opposed to the feeling of being in a giant stadium where binoculars are needed when sitting in the balcony.

Celebrate Saint Patrick’s Day at The Music Hall

Solas

As you know, this Friday is Saint Patrick’s day. If you are anything like me, the idea of venturing out to a local bar to celebrate the holiday is unappealing (long lines to get in, longer lines for the restrooms, and people who have consumed more Guinness than they probably should have) we have a great alternative for you!

Celebrate International Women’s Day With Pat Benatar

Pat Benatar

Today is the day, the day I have been waiting months for, today, I get to see Pat Benatar in concert! When I was younger, I used to have kitchen dance parties, my mother would put on the radio and we’d dance around the kitchen in our socks singing into soup spoons. As a child of the 80’s Pat Benatar was one of my very favorites. “Heartbreaker”, “Hit Me With Your Best Shot”, “Love is a Battlefield”, and of course, “We Belong” all make me what to get up and dance, no matter where I am.
