I know there are tuns of awsome builds alover for rolling kegerators things of that nature. Thats not what i am after. I am looking for how you take kegs to a party and keep them cool and serve them. they will just have picnic taps and gas, so what do you use to keep them cool and more importantly from floating in whatever ice, wter you put them in?

Corny kegs fit great in most tall kitchen trash cans.

OP specifically said he doesn't want this thing to roll. Stop being so helpful.

Dont worry about cooling the kegs build a jockey box. I'm building one for serving outside in the summer. It's just a cooler with either hose or metal coiled up. The beer passing through the tubing and ice cools it off. I'm going to try mine with 20' of liquid tubing.

ok, minor clarification, rolling is ok if it does't result in shaken beer or broken kegs, and isn't a kegerator build, was just looking for something to put them in, or broken me, so sothing tall with ice, seems to be the general concensus? whats a water keg, and do thes float when half empty? also lokking to keep the cost down to more money in ice than stuff. oh and
Voodoo, what model is the glock? looks like sum upgrades occured

Reason: i off topiced myself

I can put two cornies in a 60 qt ice cube cooler. They don't fit perfectly but you can wedge them in well enough to ice them down. As a bonus, the cooler has wheels. Tall kitchen trashcans work well too but they aren't as mobile.
