Somewhere along Route 25A in Suffolk County, Long Island is Callahan's Place, colloquially known as "Callahan's Crosstime Saloon" due to some of the happenings there. Built by Mike Callahan himself, the unassuming building is always unlocked (the front door anyway) and the bar is always open when the first patron arrives. Callahan's boasts a genuine sawdust floor, sturdy wooden furniture, an unusually-shaped fireplace and a long mahogany bar. The customers tend to be a fascinating group of regulars that includes regular folks as well as aliens, time travelers and other oddities of nature. Sometimes the regular folks are the most interesting of all. Here, the group tends to throw glassware in the fireplace as a unique form of applause. At Callahan's, reality is a little bit better and a little bit brighter, and people find they can do things they never imagined they could do.
