After more than a decade behind the decks, DJ Miss Audry is retiring. But music's loss is food's gain, since she's going to be devoting her time to helping out at Melita's Greek Cafe & Market, the spot that took over for the Economy Greek Deli at 1035 Lincoln Street. "It's been a long and amazing DJ ride for me, but after thirteen years, I have decided to hang up my headphones," she told Cory Casciato for a story on our Backbeat blog. "About a year ago, my mom and I took over a Greek cafe, which is taking up most of my time. "I finally decided it's time to focus my energy on helping my family make the business a success."
It's not a decision that came easily, but Miss Audry (aka Adriana Aguilar), who had a farewell show this past weekend, knew it was the right thing. "I had some months to really think long and hard about my decision," she said, "and when you know it's time, it's time. I'm sure I will daydream about a future 'I'm Back' party, or doing some random guest appearance somewhere. For now though, there's no plans on the radar."
Not for making music. But as for making food? Expect Melita's to put on quite the show.
