This is the time of year when we’re being besieged by charities begging us to walk/run/bike/skate/turn cartwheels “for the cure.” The Autism Society of Greater Cleveland has a better idea that even the lazy can get behind: Eat chili to help provide support for families affected by autism. The Greater Cleveland Chili Cook-Off for Autism takes place from 6-9 p.m. at the Terrace Club at Progressive Field. There’ll be music, raffles, door prizes and, of course, chili of all types — ranging from mildly spiced with Hungarian cherry and jalapeño peppers to the habanero-infused variety for more daring eaters. Suggested donation is $20. For more information, visit the web site or call 216.556.4937. — Anastasia Pantsios
