7 Things To Do When You’re Snowed In

So I don’t know about you, Granite Staters, but I am beyond sick and tired of all this snow! It’s piling up outside my window as I write this blog and we’re expecting at least a few inches here in the Southern part of the state. So, with the expectation that I may have to shovel myself […]


Fun @ Stay Work Play

Maple Sugar Madness With temperatures hovering near the 40 degree mark and as I count down the hours to that fateful moment when we losean hour in exchange for sheer daylight when we leave work at 5 o’clock, I embrace the teasing hints of spring that are creeping their way into New Hampshire. So head on out […]



Lots and lots of robots. I went to the FIRST robotics competition on Saturday at the Verizon center in Manchester (Jess mentioned it in her Fun@StayWorkPlay postlast week too) – have you ever been?! It’s like a rock concert for geeks, it’s awesome. There were teams from all over the region who came to compete….and they go all out. Teams dress up […]


Groovin’ into warmer weather!

We are very lucky to live in a region that attracts some of the world’s most talented musicians!  With perfect summer venues likeMeadowbrook Arena, the opportunities are endless! The reason that I write this blog now, is because most tickets for feature summer concerts are currently on sale, or will be going on sale this […]


What do you mean, you don’t like beer?

I’m not talking about Bud Light. I’m talking about real, flavorful beer. Well, Jon and I love it- Strange Brew and Murphy’s are always on the top of our list simply for the great tap selection. No, those aren’t rabbit droppings or wood pellets—they’re hops (beer seeds, if you will). We have been saying we were going to start […]

Help Musicians Thrive in the Granite State

Help Musicians Thrive in the Granite State

I grew up in Amherst, New Hampshire and went to Derryfield School in Manchester. I started playing guitar and bass when I was about 13, fell in love with Rock and Roll, and never looked back. I moved to Montreal after high school and helped form the Grammy Award winning Art Rock band Arcade Fire. Wild Light, […]


Good Eatin’

I am no food critic and I don’t want to make this a review of my favorite restaurants.  I just like food.  I only worked in hospitality for a few years, but my experience with The Common Man, opened my eyes to new and different foods.  I spoke with chef’s about a variety of cooking […]


Fun @ Stay Work Play

Cranapalooza I will sign up for anything that includes fireworks, especially when it comes with hot chocolate and s’mores around the fire pit at the Cranmore Mountain Resort in North Conway. Just don’t expect a typical day of skiing when you head to the slopes this Saturday, March 2 at the Cranmore Mountain Resort. The resort’s weekly celebration, Cranapalooza, […]


245 days. 8 months.

Dear YOU, Thank you. Yes, YOU! If you’re reading this then I’m sure you’re responsible for keeping me sane through these rough 8 months of unemployment. “Nobody said it was going to be easy but nobody said it was going to be this hard.” Yeah, I quoted Coldplay, so what?! Seriously though, thank you. If I […]
