Does anyone know of a good way to estimate how much ice you should buy for a cocktail hour + reception?
We're doing self-serve beer, wine, and pop for a cocktail hour and reception for 80 people, outdoors in August. We're planning on filling a canoe with ice for the main bar area, and then stocking a few other buckets as well. Extra ice will stay inside in freezers (decent amount of storage space, but still limited).
It's the canoe that's throwing me off the most. How much ice does it take to fill a canoe??
