Meg Ryan, the heroine of all our favorite '90s rom-coms, is back in a big way. Not only does she star in new film, Ithaca, but she also took the reigns behind the camera as director. Last week, Ryan and co-star Alex Neustaedter toasted to the film (which also stars Tom Hanks) with a special screening hosted by The Cinema Society with Brooks Brothers and Bird In Hand. After the showing, cast members and a slew of celebs headed to Harold's Meat + Three at Arlo Hudson Square to party. Carol Alt, Phillip Bloch, and Alex Lundqvist joined in the festivities, drinking Bird in Hand wine and raving about the film. Click through for an inside look!
