NO FAKE WANDS HERE

Having comfortable underwear is important. The last thing you want is binding or chafing when you’re busy fleeing Dementors. Well, maybe not the LAST thing you want, but it’s on the list.
Pick up two pairs of coordinating boxer briefs in your house. One is house colors with the crest on the left leg, and the other features a checked pattern. Both feature a comfy elastic waistband that proudly declares your house. So if you’re wearing baggy pants you can simultaneously rep your house. Not that you’d ever do that, mind you. But it’s an option.
On a dark, haunted night, a Russian oligarch dares a circle of international chefs to play the samurai game of 100 Candles--where each storyteller spins a terrifying tale of ghosts, demons and unspeakable beings--and prays to survive the challenge.
Inspired by the Japanese Edo period game of Hyakumonogatari Kaidankai, Hungry Ghosts reimagines the classic stories of yokai, yorei, and obake, all tainted with the common thread of food.
First course: With bad consequence, a ramen chef refuses to help a beggar, and a band of pirates get more (and less) than they were bargaining for after their encounter with a drowning woman turns ghastly.
Hungry Ghosts is cooked up by the infamous author and chef, Anthony Bourdain (Kitchen Confidential, Emmy-Award winning TV star of Parts Unknown) and acclaimed novelist Joel Rose (Kill, Kill, Faster, Faster, back again from their New York Times #1 best seller, Get Jiro!). Joining them this issue are stellar artists Alberto Ponticelli and Vanesa Del Rey, with amazing color by Jose Villarrubia, and a drop-dead cover by Paul Pope
