The data keeps telling us that women--especially those with heart problems--get less attention from the health industry than men. So it's a good enough reason to pay attention to yourselves, ladies. Here's how you can start: The American Heart Association will host Keeping Women Young at Heart, an expo and luncheon taking place today from 9 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. at the Marriott DTC, 4900 S. Syracuse St. Once you've subjected yourself to various health screenings, lectures and seminars on how to keep your arteries in tip-top shape, you'll settle down to a keynote address by actress Joan Van Ark and a luncheon featuring only stuff that's good for you. Admission is $45; call 369-5433 for reservations.
You really know it's spring when they're hitting fungoes at Coors Field. So regardless of what the weather gods choose to serve us--three feet of wet snow or a perfect day with temperatures in the low 70s--maybe it's time you completed your pagan celebration of the season with a major-league baseball game. Finding tickets for today's game might be dicey, since the matchup finds our boys in purple, the Colorado Rockies, in their first home game of the season against a team from the NL West, the Los Angeles Dodgers, but it's worth a try: Tonight's first pitch at the stadium, 20th and Blake, is at 7:05; call 1-800-388-7625 or elbow your way up to the box office--you might just find a seat in the Rockpile.
The long arm of the Denver Center Theatre Company encompasses season after season of creative and thoughtful stage offerings--and also runs the highly regarded National Theatre Conservatory, a graduate program that turns out a few good actors each year. The DCTC gives this year's graduating students a chance to shine when it presents them in Bertolt Brecht's The Good Woman of Szechuan and Lanford Wilson's Fifth of July, playing in repertory at the Source Theatre, 14th and Curtis in the Plex, daily except Sunday through April 25. Admission is $12 for all performances; for reservations call 893-4100.
