Los Altos Tweets About an Oak School Girl's Book, "Natalie's Lice Aren't Nice"

Foothill College is on a fall tour for architectural buffs, a Farmers Market vendor dines at Aldo's, and some speculate on what Los Altos businesses may decamp to the new San Antonio Center, all found in the Twitter stream, in or about, Los Altos.

Lots of little nuggets about Los Altos and Los Altos Hills in the Twitter stream this week. Check below and see what we see at Patch.

And for the Los Altos trivia buffs out there, check out #16. Just why would Chef Chu's have a signed Justin Bieber poster in the bar? 

A free canvas Patch bag to the first correct answer!

Larry Chu's son, John, is a movie director and did the Beiber movie "Never Say Never".
Mary Cruz September 05, 2011 at 04:16 PM
"Los Altos Hill" does not mean "The Hills Hills" It correctly translates to: "The High Hills"

@Audrey Crowley! You are collecting Patch bags left and right! Lawrence Chu's third son is named Jonathan, but we won't quibble. He is the director of "Never Say Never," and several other films that feature dance. Email me at lachung@patch.com to collect your bag (or perhaps we'll just meet at a school board meeting again) <grin>

@MaryCruz, I always think it's a shaky proposition that something will make sense when it's a name place mixed in two languages. In this case, @SFNick's sense what happens when you translate "Los Altos" and and add "Hills" is correct -- it's redundant in meaning. "Los Altos: means "the heights," or "the highlands," and used to refer to the ranchos in the area, Rancho San Antonio and Rancho La Puríssima Concepción. In that way "The Heights Hills," or "The Highlands Hills" are pretty darn redundant. Usually you get such nonsense when you mash English and another language together. Some easy examples are "El Camino Way" in Palo Alto and "La Avenida Street" in Mountain View where Microsoft has its big campus.

Speaking of redundant... "chai tea latte" anyone? Gotta be one of the worst.
