Eat and appreciate. The International Institute's Buffalo Without Borders, considered one of the premier ethnic food events in the area, returns Thursday in the elegant Statler with a wealth of local restaurants and entertainers.

“I wanted to take some of the stuffiness out of film screenings,” Thursday Night Terrors host and organizer Peter Vullo told The Buffalo News in 2017. “I wanted it to be something people could have fun with and decompress and laugh, scream and clap.” Vullo’s series has become a huge success since debuting in August 2016, and kicks off its fifth season on Aug. 30 with th…
