Folklore would have you believe that those things you do on the first day of the year influence the rest of your year. Have a fight today and youll fight all year; have a mind-blowing day of fun today, and how great will your 2011 be? Bob Cassillys amazing virtual reality regenerator the City Museum
(701 North Fifteenth Street; 314-231-2489 or www.citymuseum.org
) is open today from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m., which means you have a prime opportunity to positively shape your new year. Spelunk the caves, slide the slides, lose yourself in the mysteries of nougat at Beatnik Bobs and generally run around like one of the wild things all day -- even if the folklore is wrong, youll at least have one great day in 2011. Admission to the City Museum is $12, or $10 after 5 p.m. (just in case youre getting a late start today).
