There are two things you absolutely can't do without at a tailgate party: a cooler full of ice cold drinks and good food. Of course, it wouldn't hurt to have a designated place to put your drink while you eat, right? It can be a juggling act to hold your beer and snack at the same time, but this handy cooler from Keter solves that problem, doubling as a pop-up table.

Here's how it works: The lid on the cooler can be pulled up and locked into place to act as a tall cocktail table, where it can hold up to 80 pounds. Basically, it's perfect for standing around and drinking and snacking. When closed, it can hold up to 300 pounds and can still be used as a table (perfect if you're sitting in chairs and want something at a lower level), or as additional seating, if you're low on chairs. The cooler itself has room for up to 60 cans or 40 bottles along with ice, and can keep drinks cold for up to 12 hours, so you can party all day. Plus, it's weather resistant and has a built-in drainage plug, so it's fine come rain or shine and is totally easy to clean.
Keter's cooler table comes in two styles and four different colors, so you can choose your favorite (or one that matches your team!). The modern, smooth style you see in red in the photos here is also available in gray and teal, and there's also another shape with an espresso brown rattan finish that's perfect for your patio.
Honestly, if tailgating season — or throwing outdoor parties — is your thing, you need this cooler ASAP.
