When they began, the team behind Lucky Peach magazine were hoping there were others like them:  people who care about art, literature and food.   Two years later, they sell a hundred thousand of each issue and have become a model for successful niche publishing.   The Lucky Peach team will share their secrets in Honolulu this weekend.  HPR’s Noe Tanigawa reports.
