Happy weekend, y’all! I hope you have something delightful planned. (And if you need a recommendation for….literally anything, we’re having a very fun chat this week.)

GREAT NEWS and I mean this sincerely: A Simple Favor is back! That movie is FUN and Blake is legitimately fantastic in it. [Lainey]

This is a great list of beach reads and I’m not just saying that because The Royal We is on it (and called a classic!) — although that IS my favorite part. Grace and I also have the same Jasmine Guillory favorite! [The Stripe]

Good question: What’s Behind Fashion’s Rediscovery of the Bare Midriff? [NYT Style Magazine]

This is SO interesting, at the LA Times:  Inside the NFL schedule war room — ‘making everybody equally disappointed’

Every sentence of this headline is beautiful: Taco Bell fan Dolly Parton to star in Mexican Pizza: The Musical. [EW]

Aw, this is nice: Tom Hiddleston confirms engagement. [Lainey]

This also makes me happy: For a Touch of Retro Whimsy, Restaurants Are Turning to the Illustrated Menu

News you can use: Ariana Grande wore a sculpted bra top to her brother’s Star Wars wedding. As one does! [Celebitchy]

Do tell (also, this piece is very funny): The Fascinating Mystery of Anna Wintour’s ‘Go-to’ Lunch [Grub Street]

I chuckled: “Where Have All the Darcies Gone?: Matthew Macfadyen and Colin Firth were once most recognized as the perfect embodiments of the glowering heartthrob in ‘Pride & Prejudice,’ but thanks to HBO, those fuzzy memories are dead.” [The Ringer]

This felt slightly inevitable: How Bad Is the Crypto Crash? Bad Enough that Matt Damon Is Trending on Twitter. Somewhere, Ben McKenzie is delicately sipping a cup of tea. While, apparently, tweeting. [Pajiba]

THIS IS WILD, and both these guys have ice in their veins! A passenger with no flying experience landed a plane at a Florida airport after the pilot became incapacitated. [CNN]

Ugh: Jamestown, North America’s First Permanent English Colony, Could Soon Be Underwater [Smithsonian]

Finally, we were guests on Have You Heard About? A Pop Culture Deep Dive, a very fun podcast, this week! We had a great chat with Mahsa Di Placito and you might enjoy it, too.
