Pants are overrated.
No group knows this better than New York-based Improv Everywhere, which kickstarted the No Pants Subway Ride back in 2000 and has since inspired Improv AZ's annual No Pants Light Rail Ride in Phoenix.
This free-spirited event is free to attend. All that's needed is a light-rail pass and a lack of modesty.
That being said, thongs, G-strings, and crotchless panties are out of the question, not to mention totally disgusting. You will be riding public transportation after all.
Riders can start at any Park & Ride location at 1 p.m. on Sunday, January 12. Participants should get off the train at the Central and Roosevelt station and later move their half-naked hootenanny to nearby drinking establishments.
Participants should remember to remove their pants before boarding the light rail but be sure to bring extra layers and a backpack to carry them in. For more information on the who, what, and wear, visit the No Pants Light Rail Ride on Facebook.
Keep Phoenix New Times Free... Since we started Phoenix New Times, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Phoenix, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Phoenix with no paywalls.
