The Riverside portion of the Oracle shopping center, with its many bars and restaurants overlooking the lake and its 10-screen movie theater, is a popular hangout for locals and tourists alike in the evenings. Almost every night of the week, students organize and host events like rock nights, rock performances, and clubs. Besides comedy shows and salsa dance recitals, there are also global music concerts.
