Katie McQuaid's Scene in Manchester: At Zaboo, 'You'll fit right in ...'
The former Social 24 (one of those 20-something clubs) is now a dueling piano bar and restaurant featuring progressive cuisine. It’s designed to attract the 35-to-55 age bracket, and I think it’s going to work.
The space still sports the large screens used by Social 24. Mumpini said the screens and other television monitors around the bar will be used to give guests sitting away from the stage a better view of the entertainment. They will also be used to show major sporting events.

Clang, clang, clang went the trolley
The trolleys didn’t actually clang, but last Thursday’s Open Doors Manchester trolley ride through downtown gave us a small taste of what the streetcar days may have been like in the Queen City.
Looking for an adventure close to home? On a recent Sunday trip to Bear Brook State Park in Allenstown, my family and I were thrilled to find Student Conservation Association interpretive ranger Claire Delbecq running a program called “Caught on Pond’s Edge.”
Delbecq is from Seattle and has been living with other SCA rangers at Bear Brook since January. She is one of more than 4,000 volunteers working in national, state and local parks, forests and refuges across the country as part of the SCA this summer. Delbecq offers the “Caught on Pond’s Edge” program every Sunday from 2 to 4 p.m. She also runs other programs at the Bear Brook State Park campground area Wednesday through Sunday.
We are in the midst of our brief summer here in New Hampshire, so don’t miss out on your opportunity to catch some outdoor entertainment. There are many free local options listed on NH365.org this week, so pack up your lawn chairs and picnics and head outside.
Also on Thursday, the high-energy, five-piece string band called Rockspring will play a mix of bluegrass, classic rock and folk music at Veterans Park. The show starts at 7 p.m.
