Monday January 1 A flesh start: There's a reason why so many New Year's resolution lists start at the gut--the stomach tends to expand, sometimes voluminously, during the open eating season that lasts from Thanksgiving till Christmas. So on this famous day after, do consider this: There's still time to register for one of the American Heart Association's ten-week, dietitian-led Slim for Life classes, held at various metro locations during the winter months. Sign up--and even if you're an old dog, you're sure to learn new tricks for modifying your overactive eating habits. Initial class fee is $55 (up to $20 of which might be returned to you if you meet weight loss and attendance goals); for information call the AHA at 369-5433.
Tuesday January 2 Phone and games: Now that you've piously made your resolutions, how about a nice helping of dalliance and deception? A touring stage production of Frederick Knott's Dial M for Murder, an edge-of-your-seat thriller popularized by the Alfred Hitchcock film, opens tonight at 8 at the Auditorium Theatre, 14th and Curtis in the Plex, with a cast led by Nancy Allen, Roddy McDowall and Dynasty star John James. Admission during the three-week run ranges from $10 to $40; call 893-4100 or 830-TIXS for reservations.
