While the opportunity to meet Dioge the alpaca (5-7 p.m.) is pretty exciting, the animal attractions aren’t the only good thing about Peru Day.

NaO’s Food Bus will be on hand, and Bonefish Grill has supplied the ceviche. ¡A comer! Noon to 10 p.m., Great Storm Brewing, 204 Mount View Lane, #3, greatstormbrewing.com.
