MAYBE HE’S BEEN SAYING “OIL CAN” ALL THESE YEARS
We’re not sure why they didn’t name this tumbler “The Sarlacc Pit.” We woulda named it the Sarlacc Pit. Except, now that we think about it, it doesn’t seem particularly appealing to drink out of a Sarlacc Pit, does it?
This mug is called a “gulper;” it’s for folks who have a serious hydration need. It’s neither the species native to Nim Drovis, nor the droid model of the same name. It’s a tumbler that holds a lot. Thirty ounces. That’s almost an entire quart. When’s the last time you picked up a quart of milk off the shelf and drank it down? Us either. Basically, this massively oversized tumbler will have you ready for most anything. Just remember – what goes in must come out.
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
