An option you may want to consider is something a car-powered travel cooler/warmercombined with a power inverter. Take a look at the Black & Decker TC212B.
Don't fret that it's over $100, the Rubbermaid version of this cooler is identical (except for the coloring and labels) and is 1/4 the price.
The cooler is designed to sit in your car and is big enough to cool-down a dozen cans. When I go to a con, I drag it in from the car and use the power inverter to plug the car 12V plug into a wall outlet. Keeps my beverages, leftovers, salsa, cheese, fruits, etc all nice and cool... especially since I set the room temp to 68-70.
I bought mine primary for long family road-trips, but the money I saved from just two trips to Chicago TARDIS more than paid for the whole set up.
