That fad started in the tunnels of New York back in 2001, under the x-ray spec guidance ofImprov Forever,
an NYC-based "prank collective." Since then No Pants Subway Ride has gotten huge. More than 50 cities now join in the pranking mission, droppin' drawers in solidarity.
Dallas, refusing to be left out of the nudity magic, is also in the mix. On January 13, 2013, area residents will de-robe, from the waist down, on DART. Specifics to location aren't posted just yet, but you can join up -- or protect yourself from visual leg cheese -- by visiting the event's Facebook page.
Keep the Dallas Observer Free... Since we started the Dallas Observer, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Dallas, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Dallas with no paywalls.
