The No Pants Subway Ride is an annual global event started by Improv Everywhere in New York in 2002. Learn about the history of the event here:

No Pants Boston 2015 Instructions

This Sunday: The Ride. The Walk. The Party. Not the pants.

All the details are in the video- date, time, location, what to bring, and how the ride works. Don't worry if it seems complicated at first- your Route Card will tell you everything you need to do and in what order e.g. "Get on Blue Line Outbound" and then "Rob a bank".

1st Class Subway & Black Tie Beach 8/17

Black Tie Beach 2012

It's our annual summer twoffer! Convert a car on the subway into a first class experience, then play and relax at the beach dressed to the nines. It's ok if the outfits aren't in good condition or don't fit great- just no gag outfits/costumes.

Meet at Cardinal Cushing Park at noon and look for any people holding a black umbrella. Bring whatever you would normally bring to the beach, such as a towel, a change of clothes, a book, a frisbee, sandcastle stuff... and a bag to hide all that in.

We will provide a number of props for the first class subway portion, but if you have white gloves or white rags, please bring those as well. If you can play a string or woodwind instrument, please get in touch by replying to this email.

RSVP and share on Facebook

Black Tie Beach is the brainchild of Improv Everywhere. Check out their official announcement.
