Oasis is definitely a late-night scene. Come to this new tapas lounge much earlier than 10 p.m. and you'll feel like a tourist in Madrid, arriving for dinner hours before anybody else. The long, narrow dining room, fitted with cozy banquettes and metallic gold booths and lit by ornate ruby glass lanterns, may well be empty. The decor by designer Eva Schwarz is a psychedelic riff on the idea of Morocco.

In a rare instance of a major studio changing a film after its release, the Walt Disney Co. said Friday it will alter two lines of the lyrics in the animated musical "Aladdin," which some Arab-Americans have criticized as racist. Disney said the change was made only after the studio obtained approval from the estate of the late lyricist Howard Ashman and from his collaborator, composer Alan Menken. Both won Oscars for their work on "Aladdin."

If you're 25 or younger, you'll enjoy downtown Flagstaff, Ariz., walking distance to Northern Arizona University. The area is populated with people your age, an independent bookstore, an independent record store, restaurants and plenty of watering holes with cheap drinks.

Hurling down a slippery slide with thousands of gallons of rushing water; screaming bloody murder as you're spit out the end of a tube going 30 mph--now that's a kid's idea of summer fun. Parents, on the other hand, may have different ideas. That's why all of Southern California's five major water parks have pools, cabanas (with waiter service), lounge chairs and hot tubs right alongside the towering, twisting and turbulent water attractions.

In Eva Schwarz's hillside home, insects with metallic-hued bodies the color of tricked-out lowriders crawl up walls, butterflies alight on headboards and blowfish hang from ceilings. In an age when many designers are embedded in a mid-century world, architect Schwarz is in a world all her own. "Interiors are very personal--people should surround themselves with things they love," she says.
