The 2013 NYC No Pants Subway Ride Returns

The 2013 No Pants Subway Ride in New York City. You have to smile just a touch when saying it. Ah, it is back once again. Like clockwork in early January of each year, those wacky folks at Improv Everywhere are hosting The 12thAnnual No Pants Subway Ride in NYC this Sunday, January 13th from 3:00 PM to 5:00 PM. Groups will be gathering in in Astoria, Downtown Manhattan, Uptown Manhattan, Flushing, and two locations in Brooklyn. 

Details can be found right here and if you're interested in a photo gallery of past no pants subway ride that can be found here.The premise is simple: Groups of people gather on random Subway platforms to ride the NYC Subway sans pantaloons. The participants (in theory) do not behave as if they know each other or as if anything is wrong. Aside from the lack of pants, everyone wears otherwise regular winter clothing.
The event is completely free, you can RSVP on Facebook and they raising the ante be selling official T-shirtsthis year. Hey, there is even an after party at Bar 13that afternoon.
Be forewarned: it is not a small, subtle event. So far, over 4,500 people have signed up on Facebook to join. That's a lot of people missing pants. 

Bottom line, if your goal is to make some new friends and walkaway with some memorable visions and good stories, this just might be the event for you. Although, where you keep your Metrocard without any pants  is your business.

We've written in more detail about this event - feel free to check out our former posts here.  Stay warm!
