At first glance, Santa Barbara isn't a town full of large and similar
apartment buildings. At least not if you can believe what you see on the TV
show, Psych. However, just a little foray off the beaten path will take you
into areas that resemble Anywhere, USA -- complete with said apartment
buildings. For instance, if you ever venture down San Remo Drive, just off
of La Cumbre and parallel to State Street, you will come across the Tori's.
No, not the British loyalist revolutionary soldiers; the apartment
buildings. There are three and they look just alike - except for their
names. Tori, Tori Tu, and Tori Tre.
Tu and Tre ... what language do you think that is? Italian was Ed's first
guess. Tre is "three". But, Ed soon remembered the famous quote, "Ed tu
Brute?" Tu means "you" in Latin and Italian. The dedicates staff of
edhat.com opened up Google and got to work. We discovered that Sweedish is
the language where tu is "two", and tre is "three".
Tori Tre is located at 3784 San Remo, and her sign is pictured in the photo.
As it turns out, Tori, Tori Tu and Tori Tre are part of a suite of apartment
buildings managed by Kamunity Properties, scattered between Carp and SLO,
all with girl's names! They are Linda, Shannon, Sheila, Sheri, and the three
Identifying the location of the sign earned contestants 4 March Edness points.
