SteelCraft now to add a third location

SteelCraft is fast making itself the hot new urban eatery concept. The food court concept first launched in Long Beach’s Bixby Knolls area earlier this year, and approved for a downtown location on Euclid Street in Garden Grove for a 2018 opening, will be having a third location.

The Bellflower City Council on Monday approved a deal to lease a 15,000-square foot site near the intersection of Oak Street and Bellflower Boulevard in the central business district of that city. That location is expected to accommodate 10 vendors using repurposed steel containers. The Garden Grove location is slated for at least 14, which may include some retail uses as well as well as restaurants, a brewery and a wine bar.

Like the Garden Grove version, parts of the Bellflower project will have a second story and is slated for a 2018 launch.

And yet another GG outdoor music concert

The Catholic Diocese of Orange will host its annual “Christ Fest” on the campus of the Christ Cathedral campus in Garden Grove on Sept. 8 and 9. Both contemporary and traditional Christian music will be performed, with MacPowell, SonBy4, SIERVES, Mariachi Son Mexico, Shane & Shane and others, some in English and some in Spanish.

Friday, Sept. 8 will be an all-Latin program, entirely in Spanish. On Saturday, Sept. 9, there will be a food court, a wine and beer garden and a broad range of music from traditional to rock.

Worthy Park to be re-dedicated

A re-dedication of Norman L. Worthy Park in Huntington Beach is scheduled for Thursday, Sept. 7 at 4 p.m. The ceremony will be at 1831 17th Street.

The existing park has been nearly doubled in size with the addition of a multi-use practice field, basketball and pickleball courts, a children’s play area, a tot play area and a picnic structure.
