Okay, please know that generally, I am only a little crazy, but I had to post this. I just had to. Think about it: How often do you get to drop your pants in New York City and not go to jail? This is a must do!
This event is now a national phenomenon! In 2009, over 1200 pantsless people rode subways and ran amock all over NYC, over 2000 people in 10 rides in 3 countries!
The Annual No Pants Subway Ride is organized by Improv Everywhere, an improv group, based here in New York City. Since 2001, they have executed over 80 "missions" causing scenes of chaos and joy in public places across the country. This one is no exception and is guaranteed to be a blast!
Here's the deal: We will meet about two blocks from the location designated by the organizers. Our meeting place will be decided once its published by Improv Everywhere. We will then join the crowd and get semi-, partially-, totally, innocently naked! This is going to be so much fun!
And, just so you don't think I am just trying to lure you into Manhattan to get you to drop your trousers, feel free to check out details from last year's event.
And for the record: I know it will be January. I know it will be cold. This event will take place Rain, Snow, Sleet or Shine! But, think of it this way: This will be pure, unadulterated, NYC fun!
