Do You Own a Party Drink Bucket?

Although I'm single (and fabulous!), I occasionally daydream about doing a wedding registry. One of the things at the top of my imaginary list is a glamourous drink bucket. Until I fork over the money and purchase it for myself, I make do with this black plastic bucket I picked up years ago at Target. Do you have a container for holding drinks at parties? What is it like?

We usually use a big (clean!) galvanized trash can. Most of our parties are in the garage, so we just dump the water/ice after the party's over.

Uh.. duh! My bathtub! haha. At my old house, we had two fridges, one was exclusively for drinks. It was fantastic!

If a big ol' galvanized wash counts as a "drink bucket" then yes.

I bought a nice one on gilt.com not long ago - silver Swissmar bucket. It wasn't too expensive; I believe it was under $50. I also have the metal buckets that are more informal from Target (they also hold more) and a couple of champagne chillers I've picked up over the years.
