There’s a bit more information that we are not going to share out of respect for all of the people who work at the new yet beloved coffee shop, and for our friends who rent the space to them, but the news is real:
Flying Machine in Urbana will close up shop on March 28, 2018.
We will definitely miss having this sort of community gathering space, this sort of local business, and these kinds of people doing good work in Downtown Urbana.
BUT REMEMBER: Flying Machine now has its very own space, on First & Clark, in Midtown Champaign. Avionics shares a space with Page Roasting Co., which is the newest coffee roaster in Champaign, and by all measures, absolutely amazing.
Best of luck to everyone involved here. Never fun to report this sort of thing…
