After the high brought about by the high-entertainment month of December comes the inevitable crash in January when reality strikes. The endless deep freeze doesn’t help, yet there are things happening in the city that could help lift your spirits.
• No Pants Subway Ride
Some say pants are just a word for leg jail, according to organizers of the annual No Pants Subway ride. This is an event that happens around the world. Here’s how it goes down, it is a day when people are encouraged to drop their pants and hop on the subway and ride it like it was no big deal. It can be a bewildering sight for many riders especially if they aren’t aware of this annual charade. Anyone who wants to put a smile on their face and have a day of free entertainment, we suggest you head downtown and just keep riding or exploring the subway system, you will chance upon some cool young people in their fancy underwear.
