Drinks are on Matt


NBC's Today Show had their Holiday party at swank Gallery at Dream Downtown in New York yesterday. 

And while the drinks were flowing, no one had to worry about paying the bar tab.

Matt Lauer picked up the bill for the booze. Which is very impressive considering that Kathie Lee Gifford and Hoda Kotb were at the party. 

Page Six says that the entire crew including Savannah Guthrie, Al Roker, Natalie Morales, Willie Geist, Gifford and Kotb — partied hard at the Chelsea hot spot beginning at 11:30 a.m., a half-hour after their show finished.

The bash included “Liquid Sunrise” cocktails and dancing to music by DJ Journey.

“Today” executive producer Don Nash told the crowd: “Please give a big thanks to Matt Lauer — his generosity is the reason we are all celebrating at this party.”

Nash also toasted the show’s effort to close the ratings gap with ABC’s “Good Morning America” this year, saying, “We are on our way back and that’s because of all of you.”

We're guessing that Ann Curry was not invited.
