They grow up so fast. As it continues with its expansion plans in other cities, SteelCraft, the Long Beach-born outdoor food court assembled from shipping containers, is celebrating its second year with a free party that includes food specials, beer releases, live music and the opening of its latest juicy tenant. “It’s been a really exciting two years,” said Julia Lemke, a spokesperson for SteelCraft, which is also working on opening two other locations in Bellflower and Garden Grove this year. The anniversary celebration, which runs 1-8 p.m. Feb.16, will include specials from some of the vendors, including beer releases from Smog City, including a bourbon barrel-aged brew and a witbier. Food vendors such as Pig Pen Delicacy, which specializes in American comfort food, will create a decadent sandwich for SteelCraft called El Chefe. It’s a whopping dish made with Mojo Criollo pork, pastrami, swiss cheese, french fries, pickles and dijon mustard. And those with a sweet tooth will want to visit the Waffle Love counter since the eatery is bringing back a fan favorite for the celebration — the Sunshine Waffle, made with lemon curd, raspberries and whipped cream. And don’t worry, you can wash all this down with more than just beer since the birthday celebration will also offer a sneak peek at SteelCraft’s newest tenant Rainbow Juices. The downtown Long Beach-based juice maker is taking over a corner space once held by a flower shop called California Petals. The new Rainbow Juices location will be called The Juice Closet will have some food items in addition to juices on the menu. “They’re doing and introduction at the anniversary party and then they’ll be open for business by the end of the month,” Lemke said. You can also expect live music by the band Babylon Blues. Since opening two years ago, SteelCraft has become a busy location not just for food but also with free community events that include small concerts, Halloween parties and a children’s art walk and book readings. And that’s also planned for the new upcoming locations later this year. The Bellflower SteelCraft is scheduled to open this spring with tenants that include Ten Mile Brewing, Off Duty Wine Bar, Solid Coffee Roasters, Fritzi Coop, The Standing Room, Pholanthropy, Cassidy’s Corner and Long Beach Creamery, Garden Grove’s version includes Dark Horse Coffee Roasters, Renegade Taco, The Chick ‘N Shack, The Nest, Urban Pie, Honey & Butter, Cauldron Ice Cream and Barrio, a Filipino BBQ spot.

CLICK HERE if you are having trouble viewing these photos on a mobile device History goes better with pizza. Better yet: A walk through history itself, building up your pizza appetite. Both pleasures were mine during a holiday stay down in Long Beach, which holds its history in some fine old houses — and its pizza in a hip new enclave of converted steel shipping containers. What’s now known as the city’s Bixby Knolls neighborhood was first populated thousands of years ago, as indicated by Native American artifacts left by various tribes from long ago. Plunging forward centuries, the territory fell under Spanish rule and was later sliced by those rulers into the 27,000-acre portion of a larger land grant, the Rancho Los Cerritos, in 1834. That takes us from more bookish history to a trail you can walk with your own two feet: the lovely restored grounds of the Rancho Los Cerritos adobe, a big and beautiful Monterey-style home built with an impressive formal garden in 1844. Some of the stately trees from that original garden are still alive, and the chronicles housed in the adobe — including its 3,000-volume California History Research Library, its displays of archival materials from prehistoric times through 1955 and its period-furnished exhibit rooms — are quite lively too. Long Beach’s Rancho Los Cerritos adobe was built in 1844 on a Spanish land grant. (Courtesy Colleen Bentley) The property was a cattle ranch for years, before Jotham Bixby, known as the “father of Long Beach,” purchased the property for himself. He raised seven children at the adobe, as well as 30,000 sheep on its grounds. This historic home was owned by the Bixby family for several generations. Raise enough children and sheep at the right time, and your town’s streets and neighborhoods might be named after you and your family, too. Check out the Rancho’s museum shop, note its events and workshops calendar for future brain extension, stroll through the garden grounds and inhale the sweet floral scents. And then keep strolling, because you’re on the edge of one of Long Beach’s fine old neighborhoods, and walking the wide, tree-lined boulevards past a wonderfully mixed set of mini-estates is a refreshing tonic of architectural styles and lavish landscaping. For more travel coverage from the San Francisco Bay Area and beyondfollow us on Flipboard. The neighborhood properties date from the 1920s, ’30s and ’40s all the way to some more modern treatments. Noted architect Kirtland Cutter built a few of these beauties in 1929. And many have been featured in Hollywood productions, including “Ferris Bueller’s Day Off” and “American Pie 2.” For a self-guided tour, head south out of the Rancho parking lot onto Virginia Road, past the polished golf course of the Virginia Country Club and into the neighborhood on North Virginia Road. What you are going to do is flank the busy bustle of Long Beach Boulevard, your pizza-ish destination, through these shady Los Cerritos lanes, which hold many striking houses of note. However, if your belly loudly cries for the laden table, you can stay on Virginia until it hits Long Beach Boulevard, and travel another block or so south to Bixby Road. But you’ll miss a lot of these bountiful homes. Stretch your legs and your eyes a bit more by doubling back from Virginia to Locust or Pine Avenues, or onto Weston Place, and drink in some of the refinements of old architecture in a pleasant setting. Then you’re ready to hit that big old boulevard, which is part of Long Beach’s Uptown Renaissance. And what says Renaissance more than a shipping container? A concentrated bunch of shipping containers, that is. Scoff you might, but repurposed shipping containers are now spiffy homes, hotels, poolside cabanas and more. SteelCraft, a company specializing in placing small “villages” of craft food and drink vendors in urban areas, has built a friendly example in Long Beach, and it’s thriving. SteelCraft, an urban eatery village built from shipping containers, gives Long Beach locals and visitors all sorts of eating and sipping options. (Courtesy Tom Bentley) Among the brightly painted containers are vendors for craft beer, waffles, ramen, coffee — and pizza, thank the urban eatery gods. The inner courtyard of community tables is lively with folks, food and drink. There is occasional live music and other events, the Wi-Fi streams along, and the vibe is vivacious. I had a Neapolitan-style pizza at DeSano, and it was cheesy goodness. The broccoli battled the sausage for dominance, but I won. A cold IPA from Smog City Brewing soothed any jealousy I had about not owning a 1936 Spanish Revival manor with a backyard that has its own zip code. But a spruced-up shipping container? I might look into that.
