Hey, it's the first good news of 2020! Rashe Malcolm of Rashe's Cuisine is about to have a physical location once again. Malcolm has leased the space on Vine Street next to Broderick Flanigan's studio that was most recently Bajan Delight, and hopes to be open by February.
Malcolm owned a brick-and-mortar restaurant off Tallassee Road once upon a time, then went to catering only, then started building toward a shared commercial kitchen for small businesses (still in progress) and started a downtown market to let those vendors sell their wares.

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.

Late Friday afternoon, Team Clermont, the music promotion firm, sent out a press release announcing that the downtown location of Athens' Taco Stand would have its last day in business Sunday, Dec. 15.
The curse of 1660 W. Broad St., which has claimed a large number of restaurants over the past 20 years, continues, as Eden's Cafe announced that it will close Dec. 22, meaning another small, local business is shuttering right before the holidays.

It's been almost four years since the long-running Lumpkin Street Café closed, but something is finally brewing in the old house between Fleet Feet and the credit union. Luke Martineac, a young entrepreneur and business-type dude, found himself here in Athens while his wife pursues a doctorate in marine studies, wanted something to do and felt there was a need for a breakfast-and-lunch hangout in Five Points. Working with his brother, Peter, he's getting ready to open the Café on Lumpkin, aiming for late February.

Pouch, which has been serving savory and sweet pies on Broad in downtown Athens for nearly five years, is closing its doors. (If you haven't heard, Target is moving in next door.)
It won't be your last chance to get the Malcher family's pies, though. They've already moved into the commercial field, with a USDA kitchen in Atlanta that makes pies for retailers, including Stripling's. The restaurant is holding a customer appreciation day Nov. 2 (its last day) from 11 a.m.–11 p.m. with drink specials, prizes and samples.
