En garde, hostesses. You’re entering outdoor party season, in which you and your friends will be vying for the title of summer 2014’s Most Memorable Fete.
Now here’s a secret weapon: Your Little Local.
This charming 1954 camper has been reconfigured into a bar that parks practically anywhere--from the pool to your front lawn. (Think of it as an ice cream truck, but boozy.)
Owner Alex Long, a New Zealand native based in Venice, has tricked out the vehicle with a bar-nanza of features: Inside there’s a solid wood counter, two ice sinks, a minifridge, vintage barware and a booth-as-VIP area. Outside the breezy windows, you get folding chairs, lights, buntings, crates, rugs and bar stools to create an Instagram-worthy outdoor gathering space.
This is the deal: You must supply the liquor and snacks, but the trailer comes with two servers to tend bar and keep glasses filled. While Your Little Local isn’t cheap (from $800 for six hours), we think it’s worth it for a party centerpiece that’s arranged with a simple phone call and carts away the trash for you.
As for the admiring, envious looks you’ll get from your friends? Now that’s good humor.
