If you have ever looked at the New York subway, or the D.C. metro, and thought to yourself, "This is fine, but it could use fewer clothes-wearing passengers," then you are in luck.
The 10th annual "No Pants" subway/metro rides are still on for today at 3 p.m. in both cities despite a serious cold snap that hit the East Coast after the "bomb cyclone" last week. The high on Sunday will be 23 degrees and the low will be 19 degrees. The New York participants will be a little chillier. Temperatures will be as high as 18 degrees and as low as 12 degrees.
Charming weather for the no pants subway ride today. Those people are either crazy or... crazy.— Andrew Coleman Francis (@AndrewCFrancis) January 7, 2018
In D.C., members of Capitol Improv and any who are brave enough to join them, will meet at 3 p.m. in Hancock Park and then move on to the L'Enfant Plaza Metro Station to begin riding in both directions, according to the event's Facebook page.
The event also urges riders to choose appropriate underwear for the event, saying that the ride is supposed to be "family friendly." And while the transit police have no issues with the event, participants are also advised to put their pants back on if directed to do so by authorities.
The original event was started by Improv Everywhere in New York City and has since spread to cities across America and the world.
