10 Things Under $10 This Weekend: No Pants Light Rail Rides, Elvis/David Bowie, Arizona Cardinals, and More

"Grab your best underwear! No Pants AZ is coming!"

This is the message emblazoned across the homepage of local urban prankster group Improv AZ by its organizer Jeff Moriarty announcing the impending arrival of the 2010 edition of the annual No Pants AZ Light Rail Ride this weekend.

Just like last year, participants will be dropping trou after climbing aboard the Valley's METRO Light Rail system on Sunday, January 10, as a part of a massively madcap prank, likely resulting in the shock (or delight) of other passengers.

This undies-only event isn't just limited to the PHX, as mischief-makers will be following suit in cities around the world, from Amsterdam to Atlanta. And the best thing about the skintastic shenanigans? Not only are no pants involved, but also no cost as well, as participation is practically free (except for the cost of a ride pass...and maybe your dignity). Complete details are available after the jump.

Not into showing off your gams to local commuters? No problem, as there's nine other inexpensive activities one can partake in this weekend, including a celebration of the dual birthdays of both Elvis and Ziggy Stardust, a free show by "so-bad-he's-good" comedian Neil Hamburger, and more.

Read on for the full rundown.
