Just yesterday a new spot opened in Stillwater that needs to be on your list should your travels take you east. It's called Smalley's Barbeque and PIRATE BAR! I am all over the bar as they have the largest RUM selection I have seen besides my own. Available by the pour, or 'walk the plank' and select three. Topping the list at $50 is the 25-year old English Harbour from Antigua. I recommend Zaya, neat with a side of rocks. Mount Gay Extra Old and Ron Maltusalem Gran Reserva are also winners and the price points on these are perfect for exploration. Arrrrrrgh!

Food...I was told that the jerk is a recipe direct from the jerk-masters in Jamaica. I did the half chicken, It was very solid, allbeit a bit sweeter than I like. They also roast and smoke using imported pimenton wood. Kewl! Sides included a spicy slaw and perhaps the most satisfying mac and cheese I have ever had.
