Man, I hate being the bearer of bad news. And this is seriously bad news indeed. The following is an email that went out to various press outlets this morning from Meg Hammond and Ben T. Matchstick at the Langdon Street Café.
To all the friends, family, community, and performers of the Langdon Street Café,
After doing business in downtown Montpelier for six and a half years, the Café has faced a difficult decision. Due to increasing financial difficulties and circumstances, the Langdon Street Café will permanently close its doors on May 28th. This decision has not been an easy one for us.
We would like to thank everyone who has participated in the Langdon Street Café over the years—especially the Café’s founders and all of the employees past and present who have worked so hard and volunteered extra efforts to keep it going. We would also like to thank our families, tenants, and volunteer crews who have helped reinvent the space numerous times. A big thanks goes out to all the Café’s customers for feeling right at home, keeping us afloat, and for recharging our spirit. Finally, thank you to the downtown business community and to the City of Montpelier for making this town the most brilliant little star on the map.
We will greatly miss hosting you at the Café. Please come in and enjoy the Café throughout the month of May. Visit our website and Facebook pages where you can share your photos and stories. langdonstreetcafe.com
