Tina Bergmann & Bryan Thomas perform at The Battleground Mexican Kitchen and Taproom

Battleground Mexican Restaurant, 425 Cherry St, Kent, OH

We're so glad to be performing two sets~6-7 and 8-9~ outside at the Battleground Mexican Kitchen and Taproom in Kent. We have enjoyed their authentic Mexican cuisine since they opened in 2020 and will look forward to experiencing their amazing food and drinks again. Come out for an incredible meal and enjoy music on the lawn. Make sure to make a reservation at (330) 548-9019 for the lawn if you'd like to watch the music. More information on the restaurant can be found here-https://battlegroundbar.com/

The Battleground, a Mexican Kitchen & Taproom serving traditional food, unique cocktails, and their own craft beer. All of their food is made from scratch and they serve dishes representative of several regions in Mexico – pozole, churros, el pastor tacos, cochinita, mole, and their own recipes inspired by the flavors of Papantala. They offer indoor socially-distant dining, two newly-renovated outdoor patios, and a small outdoor music venue.

The Battleground is home to Drink Your Values (drinkyourvalues.org), an innovative social justice beer project. DYV beers support causes and organizations working to make our democracy more inclusive and further racial, economic, and social justice. For example, their signature Election Day IPA supports efforts here in Ohio to register voters and promote participation in the electoral process.
