?Beginning on Tuesday, April 27 — the day the River Market Farmer's Market celebrates its grand opening — Kent's Downtown plans to debut evening hours that'll find it serving food from its River Market space out of a window that opens to President Clinton Avenue. Kent's Ronnie Cox said 6 p.m. to midnight Thursday through Sunday (after the Tuesday debut) is the initial plan, though he said that's subject to change depending on business. Eventually, he said he hopes to open evenings seven days a week. The menu focus will be barbecue sandwiches, polish and bratwurst, though full-sized dinner plates will be available as well. Kent's phone number is 375-1900.
