Well, that escalated quickly. Just this past Monday, word was going around the internet that Illini Inn would be demolished this summer. What they failed to mention, however, was this the demolition was coming way sooner than we expected. They barely left us any time to mourn!
Check out the picture of the empty lot above, and next time you're having a beer, pour some out for The Illini Inn, a vestige of Champaign-Urbana who was lost on June 8th, 2017.
