5 Things To Know This AM — Apr 12 2012

One Madonna Louise Ciccone will be at the Herald Square Macy's tonight. She's launching her Truth or Dare fragrance and if you snap up one of the first 200 sold, you and 10 friends might win a Q&A with her. If given the chance, please Vogue with her and send us the evidence. (Macy's)
Meet Jessi, a self-proclaimed bubbles-and-rainbows enthusiast, who disproves the rule that New York residence requires all-black coffee and perpetual frowning. It looks like Jessi's good attitude compelled the universe in her favor, because she managed to raise 1500 cash towards her birthday parade — yes parade — on Kickstarter. Of course she did.

In a surprising twist, the National Football League, aka another excuse to eat chips and guac on Sunday nights, popped-up shop in Times Square territory, with 45 super bowl rings to display till tax-day April 15. (NYT)
The Great GoogaMooga (gesundheit!), the mega-gathering in Prospect Park of the finest in food creatives — think DBGB, Red Rooster, Momofuku — is adding wine, and a lot of it, to the repertoire this year. Clear your schedule for May 19-20, we're going sophisticated day drinking. (NYEater)
The Museum of the City of New York's online-only exhibit of 19th and 20th century couture just went live. The pieces come from triple-name dynamos: Main Rousseau Bocher and Charles Frederick Worth, aka "The Father of Haute Couture," who's touted as the founder of celebrity endorsement deals, starting with Empress Eugenie in France. Thanks? If you like your skirts poofy and your boddices Chantily laced, click ahead. (MCNY)
