Friday, May 2 - Boise's No Pants Day!

Update by Julie: Now there is coverage of No Pants Day in the Idaho Statesman and Boise Weekly. But remember: You read it here first! (Thanks, Bikeboy.)

Bulletin! Bulletin! Bulletin!

Just in case you missed it - news like this gets covered up by the nonchalant media - this Friday is Boise's 1st Annual No Pants Day!

You may be asking yourself, "So, what does no pants have to do with buses in Boise?"

Good question... I'm still kinda asking that same thing myself.

But the fact remains, according to the Boise No Pants Day Website, the occasion "was conceived during a recent forum regarding the dismal state of Mass Transit in the Treasure Valley."

So, you're being encouraged to leave your pants behind this Friday... AND ride the bus. "Usually this means wearing thick, appropriately modest boxer shorts, but bloomers, slips, briefs, and boxer-briefs all work as well."

Dress as you normally would, but without pants. And if somebody asks, tell 'em, "It's NO PANTS DAY, Silly!"

NY's Improv Everywhere has been doing NPD for a few years. I can't get excited about it. I might ride the bus Friday anyway, just to see if there are any "takers."

bikeboy, thanks for keeping this blog from being totally lame. :)

Just checked out the BNPD website,which advises:

"I suggest beginning at LEAST at 5, sans pants informally begin gathering along 8th Street Downtown and avail ourselves of the 2-4-1 Pizza Slices at Pie Hole (and maybe enjoy a beer or 2) and the Free Size Upgrade on any Coffee / Espresso Drink at Dawson's Coffee Downtown.

"Then... Grab any of the different Bus Lines downtown for a 5:45 "2 Buck Tour" (the cost of an All Day Pass).


Indeed. The best awareness this could raise is of the absurdity that Valley Ride doesn't run past 6:30 or so on most of its routes.
