We're going to give you a hand with your resolutions this week, with a special membership deal at Equinox to get you in shape, 40 days of food from Nu-Kitchen to get you eating right, a trip to Cutler's to get that new look going and wine seminars from Astor Center to get your education going. (Resolution note: Learning is always easier when booze is involved.)
