We think the crew of the original Star Trek might have been able to pick these up on Gamma Trianguli VI. Remember the paradise planet in the TOS episode “The Apple”? Well, neither drinking nor decorative pottery sculpting were on the list of permitted activities when the crew landed, but after they got rid of Vaal, that’s when the party started.
Be the hit of the landing party with these Star Trek: The Original Series Geeki Tikis. A set of 6, they include Captain Kirk, Dr. McCoy, a Gorn, a Klingon, Mr. Spock, and a Mugato. The crossover between old-school Trek and Tiki may mainly be alphabetical, but they’re both kitschy, they’re about exploring exotic ports of call, and they involve lots of drinking strange concoctions (well, at least for certain crew members), which seems legit. Your own tiki mugs can hold whatever you want, from Saurian brandy to Altair water. We don’t judge, but please remember to always fly responsibly.
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
