Shagging at the Pittsboro General Store

Pittsboro, NC - It is sad to read all these negative and probably true comments about the Pittsboro General Store Cafe. I’m past president of the Chatham Area Shag Association and we’ve had our monthly meetings there since 2009.

We’ve had a few “big events” with bands. For the past three years we’ve been nominated for a CAMMY award for Club Event of the Year. Those events were held at the General Store Café.

All of the other area shag clubs are so envious of our meeting place and the dance floor. Vance has been so supportive of our group and until the financial problems started we even had our shag lessons there on Monday night. This
economy has played havoc on one of the best places in Pittsboro. I just hope they get past this bad time and we can see it prosper again.

I invite everyone to come out to CASA’s RE-UP Party on October 16 at 5 pm. We are having a special DJ Chad Sain. Come join us. You might see a different Pittsboro General Store Cafe and have a little fun also.
 

Patricia Johnson was the president of the Chatham Area Shag Association from 2008 to 2010.
