"Gargoyles Afterlife" Page Is Up and Running on Facebook

Last week, we told you about the closing of a popular upscale restaurant in the Davis Square section of Somerville. Well, thanks to Facebook, you will now be able to follow where the members of the restaurant staff go after the place shuts down tomorrow.

A poster on the Chowhound site has mentioned that an email sent by Gargoyles on the Square directs folks to the "Gargoyles Afterlife" page on Facebook, which is where you can "follow up on the future staff whereabouts" in the future, according to the poster. Gargoyles Afterlife is a group page where you are required to ask to join the group, with the page currently consisting of about 170 members (as of Monday morning, September 19). The Facebook page can be found at this link:

Gargoyles recently announced that the Elm Street eatery would be closing its doors on Tuesday, September 20 [ED NOTE: According to the restaurant, Gargoyles closed Sunday night, September 18], after being in business for more than 15 years. One of the founders of the restaurant is hoping to open a new eatery in Arlington, while the current Gargoyles space will be home to a Mexican dining spot opened by the person behind the nearby Pizzeria Posto.

[November 2 update: Gargoyles restaurant may be closed, but according to the Gargoyles Afterlife page, their catering operation is still in business. If you would like to get in touch with them, their phone number is (781) 777-1798.]

The address for Gargoyles was 219 Elm Street, Somerville, MA, 02144.
