The Hollywood Cafe is separate from Hollywood Casino. It's an old cafe, named after the town of Hollywood, MS, just north of the town of Tunica. It's referenced in the song "Walking In Memphis" by Marc Cohn when he sings "Now Muriel plays piano, every Friday at the Hollywood. And they brought me down to see her, and they asked me if I would do a little number and I sang with all my might, And she said tell me are you a Christian child, and I said ma'am I am tonight."

I was not in the area when that song came out. Even though I've been here almost 10 years, I still learn a something about this area every day.
