Directors Guild of America Has Party at West Village Gun Club, Nixes Guns

By
Rollatini only. No guns.

The Directors Guild of America held its New York office party last night at the members-only Tiro e Segno on MacDougal Street in the West Village. The 124-year-old social club serves food and alcohol, but it also has a shooting range in its basement, where guests are typically invited to fire off a few pre-dessert rounds (it's a favorite of chef Mario Carbone, who told us the club has strict rules). The idea of a bunch of movie types having a party and shooting guns isn't an image the organization wanted to promulgate less than a week after the events at Sandy Hook Elementary School. "Out of sensitivity to the tragedy in Newtown," a source from the organization told Deadline Hollywood, adding that the event was booked in October, "no one will be using the range."
