May 2: No Pants Day in Portland?

In January, there was a “no pants on the max day” that was so well publicized that there were possibly more bloggers and newspapers/”alternative weeklies” covering it than actual participants. Yet, it is somewhat difficult to find the official, international (go Canada) “no pants day” event in Portland.

Where will the “no pants” action happen in Portland? Here is the official website and find out/organize your own “no pants day” event. From the myspace event page:

No Pants Day is a day where everyone, be they students, respectable businessmen, or cherished community leaders, leave their pants behind. Usually this means wearing thick, appropriately modest boxer shorts, but bloomers, slips, briefs, and boxer-briefs all work as well.

Here is what Drunken Rampage has to say:

No Pants Day is a hallowed tradition going back many generations (in this website's copywriter's immediate family at least, only they call it “Tuesday”), and Portland shall revel in the glory of pantsless fun. Huzzah! Rumor has it that people wearing no pants will dress as pantsless barbarians and pantslessly rait a vegan Pirate restaurant while carrying pantsless meat products and skewered pantsless stuffed aninmals on stakes. Google it, and you will know the place

    The question becomes who will be brave enough to do this? Something suggests that I’ll be the only one walking around without pants on during the day.

    The only sucky thing is that Improve Everywhere in New York were the ones who originally came up with the idea, and did incredible documentation. You might want to check out there website to see what other things Portland can copy http://improveverywhere.com/2002/01/05/no-pants.

    Jared: I think quite a few people will do this. Portland loves to take clothes off, preferably while riding a bicycle.

    Zombie Chick: Why not? There are definitely worse places to copy. It looks like we have also copied their “freeze event”, as I remember a bunch of people writing about it a couple months back. There was even a video on the Oregonian or Mercury I believe. Nothing more exciting than watching a video of people not moving.

    Anyone interested in *protesting* these dirty pantsless people?

    And by protest I mean, get drunk with them and throw pants at them.
