NBC Newsers turned out last night to honor Mark Lukasiewicz at his farewell party overlooking 30 Rockefeller Plaza at the Club Quarters Rooftop.

Tom Brokaw kicked off the party telling crowd “there is only one rule here tonight… when you are confronted by a waiter on the first pass, you have to spell Mark’s last name correctly or else you’ll be picking up the tab!”

Special cocktails included the “Decision 2016,” the “Vatican City Iced Team,” and the “Pound 5.” Over Luk’s 16 years at NBC, he has overseen special projects ranging from Democracy Plaza and Education Nation to news special coverage including election nights and Papal transitions.

Spotted at the celebration: NBC News chairman Andy Lack, NBC Nightly News anchor Lester Holt, correspondent Anne Thompson, NBC News International president Deborah Turness, Today show EP Don Nash and co-EP Tom Mazzarelli, and executives Rashida Jones, David Corvo, Liz Cole, Jamie Kraft, Tammy Filler, Marc Greenstein and the NBC News specials team.
