Who’s this Courtney chick?

I’m a Lifestyle Reporter, a Marketing Pro, and a Champion of modern New Hampshire living. After spending 12 years “living it up” as a prominent broadcast media figure in New York, I returned to my home state in 2005 when I was able to appreciate the quality of life that NH has to offer. I currently reside in swanky downtown Manchester and can be spotted dining al fresco at one of the many hot spots on Elm Street, wheeling my Mobile Patioâ„¢ to various events around town, awkwardly riding my bicycle (Sam the Eagle) to get groceries, or taking my kitten (Roxie Hart) for walks in her pink stroller.

Read my column (“Evening Out”) in New Hampshire Magazine and listen to my segment (“Out”) on Girard At Large every Thursday at 7.40am — on 90.7-FM WLMW (in Greater MHT) or streaming via girardatlarge.com.

I’m @outwithcourtney on Twitter. Follow my adventures in realtime and chat me up! You can also “like” my Facebook page for a weekly list of Courtney-approved outings in the Greater Manchester area, links to my articles and segments, and other fun lifestyle-related tidbits. If you’re comment-shy, you can email me at courtneyhoppe@gmail.com.

Fun fact: I am honored to have been described as a “bon vivant” in the January 2012 issue of NH Magazine. The title stuck!

  1. Hi Courtney—came across your profile in last month’s edition of NH Magazine. Wanted to alert you to an event coming up in Berlin that is always a crowd pleaser. You may want to attend:

    AVH (Androscoggin Valley Hospital) Has Talent. A Community Talent Show put on by Hospital staff. This year, acts from the community, in addition to Hospital staff and volunteers will be welcome to join. All proceeds from ticket sales and raffles will support the Hospital’s Relay For Life Team, and ultimately, the American Cancer Society.

    -Friday, May 11 (6PM start time).
    -White Mountain Chalet in Berlin, NH

    Local rock band, Zostak, will likely be performing a full set after the Show.

    The public is welcome to attend. Tickets can be purchased in-advance by calling 326-5606.

  2. Just read your article in NH Magazine “Doing What the Locals Do in Hudson” and see that you will be going to Merrimack soon. Here are a few tips: Go early because there aren’t many places that stay open late! We did our own “Tour de Merrimack” last spring and found out the hard way that places close early! For the best burgers (or any item on their menu) in town you need to go to Buckley’s…they have awesome Martini’s too sit in the Tavern atmosphere is great. Jump across the parking lot to Swan Chocolates for dessert…you will want to save room. The late night crowd goes to Pacific Fusion (we have since called it Club Merrimack!) We had a great time when we went there…great late night apps to soak up the Scorpion bowls!

    Have fun in Merrimack!

  3. Wishing you the best on Girard at Large Courtney I will be listening in! I’m sure you will put my Date Night spot to shame!!!!
    Maybe we can work in air together sometime
    I’m excited for you.
