Venue: In these golden days of autumn, nothing is finer than taking a road trip and witnessing nature's glorious colors and the warm rays of the sun. We are most fortunate to have neighboring towns like Stillwater full of small-town friendliness, history, and a charming vibe. Smalley's Caribbean Barbeque in Stillwater is the brainchild of Tim McKee of La Belle Vie and former LBV chef Shawn Smalley, meaning the menu is well thought out and full of delicious choices. The space is colorful, vibrant, and casual. And how could you go round ordering a rum drink in their pirate bar? Here's our take on a recent visit:

Verdict: This happy hour is ideal if you want to hang out in a large group with a menu full of items meant for sharing. Think heaping mounds of nachos, piles of wings, and their stellar jerk pork tacos at $3 a pop. Typical happy hour fare, but also some nice variations on the theme like scallion pancakes topped with jerk pork and plantains ($5). The cocktail menu is chock full of fruity rum drinks, the kind where you need to remember about the wicked strength before you find yourself acting a fool. We love the Cabin Boy ($5). This drink is rich and bursting with the taste of seemingly every fruit in the world--a cocktail that is a swell companion to Smalley's jerk-style wings, contrasting the hot spice with the sweet nectar. A little nip and bite at Smalley's is the perfect end to a crisp autumn day after a long meander around town.
