I love this time of year in Southern California. With spring chomping at the bit to race into So Cal I’ve planted my sweet Peas and parked my car. With the early spring comes Hollywood’s biggest night of the year. This Sunday, March 2, 2014 is the 86th Academy Awards show.

If you are a regular reader of Shortcuts then you know my favorite holiday – it’s No Pants Subway Ride.
It’s time for fun, at least for us in LA, fun in the sun. I can’t imagine doing this and being half nakey the on the east coast where Improve Everywhere 13 years ago started the now global No Pants Subway Ride.
