Red trolley from Crate and Barrel rolls in just in time for summer

May 18, 2010 |  7:10 am

Imagine yourself gliding up the sidewalk toward the Hollywood Bowl, fabulous picnic in tow in this slick red rolling trolley from Crate and Barrel. People, including me, stop to watch you go by. You're whistling... no... singing, "Raindrops on roses and whiskers on kittens..."

Forget "Sing-along Sound of Music." This $50 collapsible cooler on wheels tops your list of favorite things. It's obvious.

While I'm schlepping my grub in doubled-up paper bags from Trader Joe's, you'll be carelessly skimming along, your wine cool in the sponge-insulated interior pocket. The metal tube frame and heavy-duty plastic wheels mean it can handle a 40-pound capacity. And that's a hefty picnic.

I hate you.
