If you're still not receiving Morsel Code, the Scene's new dining newsletter, here's a taste of what you're missing:
• Secret Service scours Belmont Boulevard eateries in advance of Tuesday's Town Hall Debate at Belmont University. Bongo Java plans a viewing party, and newly renovated Tabouli's extends its buffet to dinner, in case Mssrs. Obama, McCain and Brokaw wanna grab a falafel after the event.
• Miro District, Radius10, Andrew Chadwick's on Rutledge Hill, tayst and Ombi get nods from The New York Times.
• Pork barrel spending takes on a new meaning at Saturday's fifth annual Country Ham Festival in Spring Hill, a day full of all things pig that includes a cured-ham competition, petting zoo, craft demonstrations, hot-air balloon rides and fireworks.
