In some cities there's the Social Safeway, in others there's the Singles' Sainsbury's. Now Nashville finally has a
meat meet market. Should we call it the Hopeful Whole Foods?
Tonight is Singles' Night at Whole Foods Green Hills, when you can cruise the aisles, dabble in "date night" samples and watch a Meal for Two cooking demo, all with a backdrop of lounge music.
If you meet your match, consummate the relationship with dinner at the Grill at Green Hills--those fried oysters can be quite the aphrodisiac. The free event is 6 to 9 p.m.
