No Pants Subway Ride St. Louis 2012
The No Pants Subway Ride, an annual global movement started by Improv Everywhere in New York, reached St. Louis on Monday, January 16, 2012 for the second year. This year, St. Louis' Improv Anywhere hosted the event (and on a Blues home game night), attracting dozens to participate in pantsless shenanigans and drawing reactions from fellow Metrolink passengers, Blues fans and passersby on the streets. The group started at Kayak's on Skinker Boulevard at Forest Park Expressway and made their way towards Scottrade Center, with a few extras straddling in on various Metrolink stops. After getting kicked off the Scottrade Center's property ("If you do not have pants on, you have to leave the property!" shouted security), they headed to the Hair of the Dog on Washington Avenue before ending the evening at Atomic Cowboy, all the while still trying to recruit more people by prompting strangers to take their pants off.
