Things to do for April 12, 2012
Custom Hats, Private Beer and Surfing
The names have been changed to protect the weekend.
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.
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
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.
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.
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.
