Default Priming possible in a week?

I have some beer that just got done with fermenting. I'm wondering if it's possible to bottle prime in a week some how? I also have some 5l mini kegs I could fill as well to prime in if it would make a difference. Of course a big gathering of friends in a week that I would like to take some homebrew. If not my only other option would be force carbing using little co2 cartridge.

If you can, it would be preferable to hook your CO2 injector to a carbonator cap and force carbonate the beer in soda bottles.

10 days is usually sufficient to carb an average-gravity beer naturally in the bottle, assuming you keep the bottles nice and warm. A week is pushing it - the bottles may still be hazy from suspended yeast and the beer may not be fully carbonated at that point.
