Everyone in NYC- save the date! Saturday Jan. 10th is when the next "No Pants" event will be thrown by Improv Everywhere. In case you don't know about this fantastic prank, let me give you the scoop. Every year in January a bunch of people gather together in NYC, ride the subway, and take their pants off at various different stations. This is one of the largest scale public pranks I've ever heard of, and it's amazing to see the faces of the confused subway goers as hundreds of passengers around them drop their pants. This will be the 3rd year in a row I'll be participating in No Pants with my pal Alex. You can read about my 2008 pants-les subway ride here.
Anyway here are the official details:
When: Saturday, January 10 at 3:00 PM, Sharp! (Over by around 5:30)
Where: Meet at Foley Square at the black sculpture/fountain. It’s near the Brooklyn Bridge 6 train stop, between Centre and Lafayette, just north of Duane. (Google Map)
Bring: A backpack and a metro card.
Do not bring: A camera (we’ll have several photographers on hand)
Wear: Normal winter clothes (hat, gloves, etc)
Facebook: You can RSVP to the Facebook Event
After Party: For those over 21, there will be an official No Pants after party at Sidebar, 15th Street and Irving Place. First drink is free if you arrive without pants.
You can read more about the event on Improv Everywhere's official site. Let me know if you plan on attending this- maybe we can meet up!
