Happy Friday! I hope you have a delightful weekend.

This week, at Drinks With Broads, we covered Eurovision, the latest in Kevin Costner’s ranting, and my two least favorite car commercials. Thursday’s edition included an Enter Through the Gift Shop of the SPAM museum, and your Bridgerton primer! We are recapping this season of Bridgerton at DWB for paid subscribers, so if that sounds like fun, you can subscribe or join the paid ranks here.
