Theres a pretty cool tradition developing at ASU thats not about frat-tastic athletics or drinking. Namely, the Undie Run, which features hundreds of postpubescent boys and girls running around in panties and tighty-whities to celebrate the end of spring classes. Last year, during Tempes inaugural version, a thousand participants ditched their cotton shackles, with the blessings of the Tempe police and the university administration, and sprinted around campus in next to nothing.
Expect more (or maybe less?) of the same when this years event commences outside the ASU Student Recreation Complex. The clothes drop at 9 p.m.

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.
