Bars (Drinking Establishments), Callahan, Mike (Fictitious Character), Epigrams, Fiction / Science Fiction / General, Key West (Fla.)
All the best lines from the Saloon at the far-out edge of space-time!Off the Wall at Callahan's is a collection of epigrams, maxims, proverbs, observations, eye-watering puns, and original song lyrics distilled from the first five volumes of the Callahan's Place series (from Callahan's Crosstime Saloon to Lady Slings the Booze). After the original Callahan's Place was destroyed, all of these gems were painstakingly deciphered from blown-up old photos of the wall behind the bar, where Callahan let his customers scrawl graffiti in place of the usual mirror. So technically, every word is "off the wall." Further ennobled by numerous interior B&W illustrations by Phil Foglio, there are even capsule bios at the end for every person (real or imaginary) quoted in the graffiti section. Welcome to Callahan's Crosstime Saloon . . .There's no place like it in this, or any other, universe.
