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!
