Rambling wood shack SWALLOW AT THE HOLLOW
, owned by Bill Greenwood and partners, may look like a Hollywood set, but this is sho 'nuf the place to get your 'cue on. Three kinds of sauces on the table let you slather your pork -- chopped or ribs -- as you see fit. Homemade pickles are tangy and toothsome. The place is hopping on Fridays and Saturdays when songwriters from Nashville's Bluebird Cafe come down to play hit songs they've written for country stars.
