Greg Risling NEWPORT BEACH -- Hoping not to fade from memory, operators of the revived Cannery restaurant will open its doors on a limited basis beginning Thursday. The Newport landmark that was scheduled for demolition in favor of new condominiums will be open four days a week until the end of the year. The new hours will be Thursday through Saturday, 5 to 10 p.m. and Sunday, noon to 7 p.m. With its closure last month, the restaurant appeared to be doomed, but Newport resident Jack Croul purchased the property from developers.

Ron Salisbury, owner of The Cannery restaurant in Newport Beach, knows Tom Seaver well, back from the days when the former Mets’ star pitcher was playing for USC. In Los Angeles, Seaver would go for the food at El Cholo, another restaurant owned by Salisbury and his family. Salisbury and Seaver hit it off, becoming friends. But Tuesday at The Cannery, the night is not so much about their friendship, but rather for the fifth annual Hot Stove League Series. Seaver is scheduled to speak to a group of as many as 50 people to give some baseball fans a rare and up-close experience.

Recently, me and my wife enjoyed our last dining experience at the Cannery. Over good food and a bottle of our favorite wine we talked about many of the memorable experiences we enjoyed during our patronage through the past 26 years. For us, the Cannery was a great place to take out-of-town guests and gather with relatives to celebrate. The water location, inside ambience, good food and above all, a wonderful staff that always knew, and acted like, they were truly in the hospitality business and enjoying their profession.

Editor's note: This corrects what happened regarding the Cannery in the 1990s. According to the city’s Planning Department, the city issued a citation to the Cannery, which had allowed dancing without a permit. The restaurant then applied for a dancing permit, but the City Council denied the Cannery the permit. NEWPORT BEACH — If the City Council confirms Mayor Mike Henn's committee appointments Tuesday, business owners will likely rejoice and residents may want to pay close attention.

As Newport Beach's Cannery Village changed from an industrial pocket of shipbuilding and canneries into a residential, entertainment and marine business hub, one thing always was missing: a public dock for small boats. Now that the city has completed the renovation of a wooden wharf and installed a 100-foot guest dock, boaters can tie up for a short time and visit friends, shop at stores and dine at nearby restaurants. It will be especially useful as the city contemplates a "revitalization" of the surrounding areas of Lido Marina Village and the existing City Hall site, potentially to include more restaurants and shops.

For the past 20 years, Shawn Michael Droke has held numerous occupations, but his avocation has always been the same. He's waited tables, landscaped gardens and sold women's shoes all in the hope of saving enough to open his own art gallery. Last week, the 41-year-old realized his dream. "I did anything to make money so I could keep doing my art," Droke said. "It's taken me a long time, but now I am finally at the point where I can just do my art." With dozens of acrylic paintings on display, the modern realist's ambitions extend beyond the walls of his Cannery Village studio.
