Things to do for April 12, 2012

The Weekender

Custom Hats, Private Beer and Surfing

The names have been changed to protect the weekend.

Thursday
Custom Hats from Eugenia Kim
MEN WITH HATS

Custom Hats from Eugenia Kim

Look at the top of your head right now. Actually, that’s impossible. We’ll just tell you: you need a new hat. And you can plot out your cranial ideal with hat goddess Eugenia Kim, who’ll be hanging around for part of this event while you customize yourself some headwear. Sketches are optional.

Apr 12, 6pm, through Apr 14, Henri Bendel, 712 5th Ave (at 56th St), 800-423-6335

An LI Sushi Joint Takes Manhattan
ROLL CALL

An LI Sushi Joint Takes Manhattan

Your cup runneth over with sushi options. And you have no problem with that. So add this Long Island export to your wasabi-drenched spicy yellowtail tour schedule. You know, if you’re into East Village temples of nigiri and the occasional chopped-salmon taco.

Your Table at the Standard Beer Garden
DRAUGHT PICK

Your Table at the Standard Beer Garden

The Standard beer garden: you’ve done things you’re not proud of for seats. But now, a friendly phone call will score you one of their new Stammtisch tables. Our German’s rusty, but apparently that translates to by-the-hour bouts of unlimited in-table beer taps and pretzels. They’ve got a word for everything.

Friday
A Beachy Pop-Up at Chelsea Market
BREAK UP

A Beachy Pop-Up at Chelsea Market

Watching Rob Schneider’s tour de force performance in Surf Ninjas sealed it—you’re taking up surfing. And you’re going to start here, where you can pick up rash guards, some beach-friendly button-downs and boards specifically shaped for East Coast waters... Honestly, it may even be better than Cabin Boy.

Wednesday
A Little Something Famous for Your Wall
HIRST SO GOOD

A Little Something Famous for Your Wall

In 2007, a diamond-covered skull that Damien Hirst created allegedly sold for about $80 million. You came up just a little short on that one. At this, the Affordable Art Fair, you might just be able to walk away with some of his other work. Something a little less... diamond-y.
