Anyone know where to buy Galvanized tubs in the SF Bay Area?

Where can one walk into a store and buy these things? I've got a friend having an outdoor wedding in the very near (as in too near to have anything shipped) future. He is looking for some big galvanized tubs to fill with ice and drinks and needs to be able to go pick them up in the SF bay area, preferably the east bay or San Francisco. Anyone able to save the day?

Having a Fashion Emergency!

Going to an engagement party tonight, as a guest. Is it okay if I wear a white dress? Is it a faux pas? The dress is a simple white shift mini dress with cap sleeves and silver flecks. I'm wearing opaque black pantyhose to give it a mod look, but I have been told with a 50/50 response that it's not okay to wear white to an engagement party. What do you think?

I'm glad I'm not from the 80's, but for one night I want to look like I am.

In a month or so I'll be going to a pretty epic 80's themed college party. I need ideas for a costume/ where to get it. I've read up on some websites with suggestions, but I figured metafilter would have better taste. I am a thin white male. I am willing to pay up to $100 but would prefer less than that. I want it to be something Ic an dance in. Any suggestions on what to wear or where to get it?

Different kinds of partay....

What's the difference between various types of parties? Why are some called hootenannys, others called hoedowns, still others called mixers, balls, dances, shindigs, etc? Can anyone point me towards a (semi-serious, or totally facetious... either one would be valuable) list or comparison of various types of parties? Bonus points for descriptions of linguistic / dialectical differences.
