The Today Show Stars Celebrate the Holiday Season at Rockefeller Plaza
The stars of The Today Show certainly know how to celebrate the holiday season in style! NBC mainstays Savannah Guthrie, Al Roker, Hoda Kotb, Dylan Dreyer, Jenna Bush Hager, and many more gathered to celebrate the holiday season in a grand fashion over the weekend. This year’s celebration was a stark contrast to the previous year, providing a much-deserved break for the beloved bunch.
A Very Different Celebration
The beloved hosts of The Today Show got to leave Studio 1A early in the afternoon to head to their holiday party, and they didn’t have to venture far. For their holiday gathering, the Today Show stars had none other than their former NBC colleague Pete Davidson and his townhouse-turned-bar, Pebble Bar, to thank for hosting them. Pete, who left Saturday Night Live after eight seasons, is the co-owner of the popular spot. The multi-level bar has a secret entrance through Rockefeller Center, making it the perfect location for the Today Show crew to enjoy their holiday festivities. The bar is located in a 19th-century townhouse that has a rich history, having once housed an Irish pub during the Prohibition era and surviving the construction of Rockefeller Center.
A Festive Affair
The hosts enjoyed a delightful spread of seafood offerings, elevated bar snacks, and elaborate drinks at Pebble Bar. Some of the Today hosts took to Instagram to share a glimpse of their celebrations with their fans. Savannah Guthrie shared a slew of photos from the fun afternoon, expressing their ability to “crush a party that starts at 3pm.” Her co-host Hoda shared an epic group shot of the crew cheersing to the camera, thanking their lucky stars for such a wonderful crew.
A Well-Deserved Break
The celebration was a particularly significant one, especially for Al Roker, who had faced a terrifying health ordeal during the previous holiday season. Al had to undergo several hospital stints and a seven-hour surgery, leading to a weeks-long hiatus from his usual spot on The Today Show. Last year, his colleagues made every effort to include him in the festivities as much as possible, even surprising him with Christmas carols at his home while he recovered with the help of his wife Deborah Roberts. This year’s celebration was a testament to his recovery and a much-deserved break for the entire team.
A Heartwarming Reunion
Fans of The Today Show were thrilled to see the tight-knit nature of the hosts shining through once again. The stars’ social media posts were flooded with comments from fans expressing their joy at seeing the hosts enjoy a proper holiday break. The heartwarming comments showcased the deep connection between the hosts and their fans, cementing the special bond shared within The Today Show family.
The holiday celebration at Pebble Bar was a fitting way for The Today Show stars to unwind and rejoice in the festive season. The event not only brought joy to the hosts but also brought joy to their loyal fans who were delighted to see the anchors having a great time. The tight-knit nature of The Today Show family was on full display, and the heartwarming photos and messages shared by the hosts served as a reminder of the special bond they share. Cheers to another memorable holiday season for The Today Show family!
