PERFECT FOR STUDYING IN THE COMMON ROOM
It’s been years since the fall of Voldemort and things at Hogwarts are just starting to get back to normal. One thing that’s never changed, however, is the copious amount of homework. Let’s see: Professor Dram is making you write four feet on the last potion you made in class, Professor Binns is having you read three chapters in your history book, Professor Sprout expects progress to be done on your semester-long Herbology project, and… the list goes on and on. It’s gonna be a looong weekend, so get your stuff, get into some comfy Harry Potter House Lounge Pants, and hit the books! (The ones that don’t hit back, anyway.)
These comfy, soft black lounge pants feature the House Logo and Name (Gryffindor, Slytherin, Ravenclaw, or Hufflepuff) running down the left leg. They have pockets for stashing your last chocolate frog and an elastic waistband with a drawstring because presumably you also ate all the other chocolate frogs.
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
