In the tradition of A.E. “Bean” Backus, who knew the best way to bring people together was with great art and wonderful food, the A.E. Backus Museum & Gallery invites you to join us for the 23rd Annual “All You Should Eat” Backus Brunch on Sunday, March 3 from 9:30 a.m. to 12 noon. Brunch tickets are $20 in advance or $25 at the door, rain or shine. The annual raffle drawing for an original Backus painting valued at $25,000 will be held at 12:30 p.m., with raffle tickets available for $25 each, 3 for $60, or 6 for $100. Brunch and raffle tickets are available online, by phone, or by visiting the Museum during regular hours.
The Backus Brunch is the modern translation of an authentic Florida Cracker breakfast, with many extras to enjoy. The signature menu items are fresh-fried mahi-mahi, creamy scrambled eggs laced with cream cheese and other secret ingredients, southern-style biscuits, and cheese grits. But your palate will be even happier to know that there’s also sausage, pancakes, biscuits with the Summerlin Family secret recipe for sausage gravy, fresh squeezed Nelson Family Farms orange juice, Plant City strawberries, and, naturally, mimosas and Bloody Marys.
