Caturdays at Dolores Park

Saturday, Jan. 4, marks the year’s first Dolores Park gathering of cat owners and their feline friends on leashes for a daytime gathering. The “First Caturdays” are a monthly meet-up held on the first Saturday of the month at Dolores Park. The idea is to socialize your cat, either on a leash or, sometimes, in a stroller. More information on the Facebook event page.

La Victoria bakery taking orders for Roscas De Reyes

More than a year after being expelled from its original site at Alabama and 24th streets, the folks who ran La Victoria Bakery’s final iteration have reopened a new store, Victoria SF, at 3249 24th St. near Capp Street.

Danny Gabriner, the co-owner of Victoria SF, wrote in an email that it had been a time-consuming challenge to get all of the permits. Gabriner and his business partner Laura Hernandez are not currently permitted to bake on site, and are serving food prepared elsewhere. But they plan to eventually sell their pastries and offer sandwiches, coffee and other goodies produced on site. 

Gabriner wrote that the bakery is stocked with “Roscas de Reyes” — the large, donut-shaped pastries eaten on Dia de Reyes, or Epiphany, celebrated on Jan. 6.
