Get Out: No Pants Subway Ride, Bebop & A Skirball 'Soapbox' Talk
IMPROV: It's freezing out, but it just happens to be the annual, international No Pants Subway Day so don't be surprised to see people stripped down to their skivvies on the Metro today. If you're interested in going, the festivities kick off at 1 pm at Union Station. For more information, check out the local event's Facebook page, the official Improv Everywhere page and our gallery from last year. And yeah, it's pretty much legal unless you make a ruckus.
