Birdie’s & Cassandra Jenkins
Austin’s very own Birdie’s stops by for a chat on this episode of Snacky Tunes. Tracy Malechek-Ezekiel (Chef and Co-owner, Birdie’s), Arjav Ezekiel (Wine Director and Co-Owner, Birdie’s) and their son, Remy sit down with Darin for a chat about the local dining scene, their new approach to running a restaurant, and who gets to pick the playlist at their fine-casual spot. Then we dig into our archives and rustle up one of our favorite performances from December 2013, when singer-songwriter Cassandra Jenkins dropped into the studio to talk about growing up in a musical family on NYC’s Upper West Side. She also played us some songs from her newest self-titled EP at the time. Cassandra’s still making music we love, and you should check out her latest album, Play Till You Win.
