New Years in Chatham County

New Year’s Eve is all about spending time with friends and family as we prepare to tackle the coming 12 months. After writing down your resolutions for 2016, it will be time to head out on the town (either with the family or as “just adults”).

Here’s how to ring in the New Year if you live in Chatham County:

1. Enjoy an “Enchanting Evening” at the Pittsboro Roadhouse:

Grab your partner and make like Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers when you attend the Pittsboro Roadhouse’ New Year’s Eve party. The NC Revelers Orchestra, a nineteen piece orchestra will be leading the night in Hollywood-style music, and you will have the time of your life, dancing the way the stars did in the fifties, for one magical evening.

When you take a break from all the dancing, you’ll enjoy a spread of hors d’oeuvres (including Bacon Wrapped Brussel Sprouts and “901” Tequila Marinated Shrimp with Agave Avocado Aioli), and a champagne toast at midnight!
