He's baaaaaack! Rafaelo, "Our Favorite Building Manager," made the scene at 7th and Montana this morning after a two-and-a-half-year hiatus. For those who don't know him, Rafaelo's history is as colorful as a Hollywood screenplay. He used to manage his cousins' building near Starbucks, but spent most of his time regaling the crowd with fanciful stories from his past. One day, he was Canadian, the next, Italian. A retired Green Beret, he would spend hours plotting to open new businesses on Montana ranging from a Jewelry Emporium to a Filafel House. So, where has he been these past few years? "Everywhere!," he said, smiling, "I travel all over, I tell you: Canada, China, Oxnard ... you name it, I've been there!" He also has a new job, managing his cousins' clothing outlet in Hollywood. "Again with the cousins?," I asked. "Different cousins," he said, "You want suit? We get you suit!" For now, the clothing will have to wait. Rafaelo is busy supervising an important renovation at 7th and Montana. Who knows, maybe there's a Filafel House in our future, afterall ...!
