The Cafe Figaro was more like a magical mystery tour then a job. I went to work there as a dish washer and ended up the manager. I have no idea how that happened. I do know that the amazing diversity of people ranging from Billie the bum, Jim Brown the football player to then California Secretary of State Jerry Brown was quite educational. Amazing coworkers and regulars, classical music, strong ass espresso and Sangria, Tiffany lamps and French cigarettes created an unparalleled work atmosphere.
