Happy weekend, everyone! I hope it’s a great one for you and yours.

This week at Drinks With Broads: We had a new Bridgerton recap! We discussed random shit I bought on the internet, the new dudes of The Bachelorette, and Rupert Murdoch’s wedding! (Also I snuck in the news that I myself got married last Friday, yay! Thank you for all the kind words!) Yesterday’s edition covered the upheaval at Chanel, a major auction at Sotheby’s, Traitors casting, and Alec Baldwin’s return to MILF Island.

We had A VERY FUN and also useful chat here full of travel recs.

I’ve been following all the D-Day anniversary events via the Associated Press live blog. It’s been quite affecting and very interesting. God bless those veterans who were able to make it back to France for the events.

Also a, er, notable anniversary: Happy 50th anniversary of the Cleveland baseball team’s chaotic ten cent beer night. This is a really good piece; “chaotic” maybe isn’t a strong enough word. [USA Today]
