This Sunday January 12, 2014 is the annual No Pants Subway Ride Day!


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 Improv Everywhere 13 years ago started the now global No Pants Subway Ride.
For all of our literal readers, in this situation “no pants” does not mean naked butt…participants must wear underpants! Unless you want to be arrested! All kidding aside, Improv Everywhere does have some rules.
Oh now don’t get your panties in a bunch the rules are simple, from their website a little prep for the east coasters.


1) Willing to take pants off on subway
2) Able to keep a straight face about it
