Gigi’s Cupcakes, Bone Island Grill Are Closing, and More Food News

Both locations of the franchise Gigi’s Cupcakes (downtown at Pulaski and Broad, by what is now a Chase bank, and in the Epps Bridge giant shopping area of insanity) will close effective end of day Dec. 21. Both stores are selling cupcakes for $3 each until they run out.

The Oconee County location of Bone Island Grillhouse, also out in the Epps Bridge area, also closed, on Dec. 16. The original Eatonton location remains open and will honor any gift cards.

Craft Public House, on the Eastside, remains shuttered, and its voicemail is full. The folks at Johnny’s Pizza reported something about a gas issue that needed to be fixed, but there has been no confirmation from Craft, and its Facebook page is silent.

On the bright side, Pouch Pies, which closed its restaurant earlier this year, will begin selling savory pies at Walker’s, in downtown Athens, this weekend during the late-night hours.
