    Giuliani Goes Double or Nothing in Iowa and New HampshireGiuliani must be seriously freaked about Iowa and New Hampshire. Just as a group called “9/11 Parents & Families of Firefighters” is preparing to pillory his terrorism record with a town-hall meeting today in Hanover, New Hampshire, the Republican candidate has launched his first direct-mail offensive that touts him as “America’s Mayor.” While he’s boasted about his 9/11 record in the past, until now he’s refrained from using his media-given nickname to get attention. But with Romney in the lead in the two key early-primary states, Giuliani is now targeting voters in both with a pamphlet explaining how he “led the largest rescue and recovery operation in US history.”

    Chefs Versus Firefighters!It doesn’t sound like a fair fight: firemen challenging chefs in the kitchen. But the organizers of the Iron Skillet Cook-Off, to be held Monday night at Strata, assure us that the event is no setup. “It’s been about 50-50 over the last five years,” Ingrid Maritato of World Cares Center told us. “The firefighters can hold their own.” The firemen create the dishes and the chefs, including Marc Murphy of Landmarc and Brian Bistrong of the Harrison, will try to execute their own, improved versions; the crowd gets to try both. There will also be a beer pairing by Garrett Oliver of Brooklyn Brewery. Admission is $150 and benefits World Cares Center, a disaster-volunteer organization. Go here to purchase tickets. Mon., Oct. 30. 6–10 p.m. Iron Skillet Cook-Off
