Default Creative Ways to Serve at Party

I'm having a New Years Party and I'll have at least two cornies of home brew to serve to the guests. I'm wondering if people can post pictures and ideas of creative ways to serve this instead of just a corny sitting in a bucket of ice. I know I've seen pictures before of creative things people have put together.

Any suggestions?

I haven't done it, but there is a thread or two around here (sorry, gonna have to search for it) on people who've done

Square coolers with the lid cut out to fit around the corny.
Rolling Garbage can kegerators.
Jockey boxes of all makes and sizes.

This is my travel setup. It fits my 3G corny with the lid pushed all the way down. You do something along these lines with a larger cooler. This thread has some good ideads as well.

My only advice would be to commandeer the sink. That kegs deserves respect! (and no sweating on the floor, easy ice drainage, etc...)

Nice! I know I can find this info somewhere else, but how do you throw the tap on the corny like that and is that a paintball CO2?

I like that setup. What equipment do I need to make that happen?

I realize I can do the adapter for my pin locks but does anyone sell a pin lock quick disconnect? That option isn't on the site you posted.

EDIT: Sorry I'm an idiot I found it on the website. Thanks.

Will 1 of those little CO2 cartridges be enough to pour an entire corny keg full? I'm sure it isn't but I'm wondering how many times you'd have to change it during a party.

EDIT: Just read a description on another site and realized it will take 2 or 3 to empty 5 gallons. Maybe this is more trouble than just using my tank? I like the idea of not having the tank around for people to knock over though.
