We aren’t sure exactly what they are supposed to be used for, but Lil’ Reds Cups ($11-$50) sure are useful. These 1.75oz plastic cups are mini replicas of the infamous kegger counterpart: the Solo cup. Buy them in batches of 60, 100, 200, or 400 and enjoy oversized shots, impossible games of beer pong, confused faces on everyone at your next keg party.
Nobody likes lugging a heavy cooler around the back yard, which is why we like the Rio Entertainer Rolling Cooler ($80). The all-welded steel body and injection-foam-unitized interior keeps up to 100 12-ounce cans cold for up to 3 days. It has a built-in bottle opener and cap catcher for when you are enjoying your favorite microbrew that doesn’t come in a can.
