5 Things to Know in New Hampshire This Week (3/25/19)

Casinos, comedy, and moreā€¦

It’s officially spring, and parts of New Hampshire have seen vague glimpses of it in the past few days. Crocuses are starting to poke their heads timidly through still-cold ground and the snow has all but disappeared along the Seacoast. New Hampshire has made national news this week, and fun things are on the horizon. Check out the following five things to know this week in the state.  

From Stratotanker to KC-46A Pegasus

New Hampshire bid adieux to the Stratotankers that had long flown out of Pease Air Force Base in recent days, making way for the new KC-46A Pegasus tankers, set to arrive in November.

Casinos could come to New Hampshire

A bill that was killed earlier, allowing casinos in the Granite State, was revived in a 13-11 vote. Sen. Lou D’Allesandro has worked for 20 years to bring casinos to New Hampshire. If the bill passes, gamblers will be able to visit casinos in both Seabrook and Newton.

Three big acts coming to Palace Theatre in Manchester

Check out the roster of events at the Palace Theatre this week for three big acts. Who doesn’t remember Loggins & Messina? Kenny Loggins and Jim Messina topped the charts in the early 1970s with “Watching the River Run” and other big hits. Jim Messina Band will be at the Palace Theatre on Wednesday, March 27 at 7:30 p.m., with another blast from the past—POCO. Los Lobos of “La Bamba” fame will appear on Thursday evening, March 28 at 7:30 p.m. And comedian Bob Marley will lead to roaring laughter on Friday, Saturday and Sunday, March 29, 30 and 31, with at least two shows per date.
