Irresistible elixirs benefit Take Early Action and Live

If you were wondering where all of the young and the restless could be found on Thursday, you needn't look any further than Bakery Square, where a line of BPs (ahem, beautiful people) stretched out into the parking lot as they impatiently awaited entrance into TEALTini.

"We actually pre-sold about 215 tickets, but we're expecting close to 300," commented Mary Urban, the Take Early Action and Live Pittsburgh chapter manager that threw the bash to benefit the National Ovarian Cancer Coalition.

Using the raw space in the Google building as its playground, TEAL transformed an otherwise-dull workday into a serious happy hour, challenging local mixologists to put their own twist on the TEALTini and resulting in irresistible elixirs, including Madame Ovary's Herbal Elixir and The Kiddie Pool, garnished with speared Sour Patch Kids.

"She'll be the last one standing," laughed Niki Doring of her friend, Mia Ortega. "She just sips and gives the rest to me."

Host Joe King looked tres fab in his apropos hued jacket, "I knew EXACTLY what to wear to this party," while the ultra-glam Miss U-FAB made the rounds, spreading her fabulosity with the likes of Jack Bellas, Eileen French and Patrick Jordan, Jolene Miklas, Mike Cunningham and co-chairs Diana Joswick and Kelly Mellott.

Shopaholics looking to take a break from the festivities found their wallets tempted by the I Made It! Market artists, who had set up shop selling their TEAL-inspired wares, with a portion of the sales being donated to NOCC.

What can we say• Cheers!

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using TribLive.com you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
