I was at a small house party recently where the owners had the coolest freaking party accessory ever: a counter-top-height cooler on wheels. It was compact, it was brightly colored, it had a bottle opener built-in, and it was full of booze. It was beautiful, and I want one.

So now I'm on the hunt for a best outdoor party accessory ever. Grab a cold one and join me?
