Overflow

Giant cubic ice sculptures by '60s icon Allan Kaprow will be re-created all over the city this weekend, thanks to LACMA. Willing and able volunteers can join the LA Art Girls—a crew of female artists—to build the Getty's component. Then KCRW DJ J. Sole will arrive to liven up the spectacle of watching ice slowly melt.

411: Apr 26, construction begins at 10am, party begins at 6pm, Getty Center (at the Lower Terrace Sculpture Garden), 1200 Getty Center Drive, 310-440-7300

SUNDAY HANGOVER

Pancake Lasagna at the Foundry

In another amazing advancement in hangover cuisine, The Foundry on Melrose introduces a new "Hair of the Dog" Sunday brunch with live jazz, Grapefruit Bloody Marys and...Pancake Lasagna. A maple-bechamel sauce holds together each layer—it goes pancake, sausage, scrambled egg, cheddar, pancake, maple-glazed black pepper bacon, egg, cheddar. Bravo.

411: Apr 27, 2pm, then every Sunday beginning May 11, The Foundry on Melrose, 7465 Melrose Ave (between Gardner and Vista), 323-651-0915
