Fiestas Patras, the Peruvian Independence Day, takes place on July 28, but conscientious Bay Area eaters can turn this into a two-day party.

The night before (July 27), celebrate with live Criollo music from 6 to 9 p.m. in the rose garden of Berkeley chicken rotisserie bistro Brasa (formerly eVe). All-you-can-eat pollo is $20 for adults and $10 for children. Advance tickets are recommended and are available via Eventbrite.

On the official holiday (July 28), La Mar Cebicheria Peruana offers $5 pisco sours all day and live Criollo music from 5:30 to 8:30 p.m. The regular menu is available, but chef Diego Oka is preparing a holiday cebiche special as well as cuy (guinea pig). Hey, if you're going to celebrate, you might as well go all-out.
