If you’re a fan of cooking competition shows and a hungry carnivore, you’ll want to head to Chelsea Market today for NYChiliFest 2014, where chefs are given 100 percent dry-aged, locally raised beef from Dickson’s Farmstand Meats to create the best chili they can concoct. More than 20 local eateries, including Cannibal, Jeepney, La Palapa, Pies-n-Thighs and the aptly named Spices and Tease, are participating. Come hungry: $50 gets you unlimited chili, and $5 gets you a Samuel Adams beer as well. Ticket sales supportFood Systems Network NYC, which works toward “universal access to nourishing, affordable food.”

Chelsea Market, 88 10th Avenue, 7-9 p.m.,  $50 (unlimited chili), info@foodsystemsnyc.org

STAR OF DAVID OR 'PLAIN STAR'?   If you thought "CP Time" was impolitic, on July 2 Donald Trump posted a picture on Twitter of a Star of David on top of a pile of cash next to Hillary Clinton's face. You'd think after the aforementioned crime stats incident (or after engaging a user called "@WhiteGenocideTM," or blasting out a quote from Benito Mussolini, or...) Trump would have learned to wait a full 15 seconds before hitting the "Tweet" button. But not only was the gaffe itself bad, the attempts at damage control made the BP oil spill response look a virtuoso performance.  About two hours after the image went up on Trump's account, somebody took it down and replaced it with a similar picture that swapped the hexagram with a circle (bearing the same legend "Most Corrupt Candidate Ever!"!). Believe it or not, it actually got worse from there. As reports arose that the first image had originated on a white supremacist message board, Trump insisted that the shape was a "sheriff's star," or "plain star," not a Star of David. And he continued to sulk about the coverage online and in public for days afterward, even when the media was clearly ready to move on. This refusal to just let some bad press go would haunt him later on.
