Good news for the sartorially oppressed: The No Pants Subway Ride takes place this Sunday, January 11. To participate in the annual mass-transit trouser drop, hosted by BostonSOS, show up at Pemberton Square, near Government Center, at 2pm (be sure to bring a backpack or bag for storing your bottoms). Look for an umbrella-toting organizer to receive your brief (see what we did there?). For more details, head to the official Facebook event page, where you’ll find an entertaining and informative video that outlines the four-act prank. After the event, dance your pants off (wait, they’re already…) at McGreevy’s from about 3:30pm.

No Pants was started by Improv Everywhere founder Charlie Todd in 2002 when he had the crazy idea to confuse NYC subway users by showing up on the train in his underwear. Since then, the quirky tradition has grown from just 150 participants in its first year to 25 countries as of 2014. Now is your chance to get in on the international phenomenon.
