No Pants San Francisco - Saturday, January 12th

Here's another hilarious flash mob-type event going on in SF (and nationwide)... ride BART without Pants!!! Here's the description:
Description taken from other cities' events...
First things first, if you don't know what this is you MUST go to and read, read, read! Also Facebook page:
New York is holding their annual No Pants Subway Ride on January 12th and WE NEED TO PARTICIPATE!
Improv Everywhere is a group based in NYC that stages large-scale "Scenes". The No Pants Subway Ride is an annual event that gets upward of 200 participants, some veterans and many new volunteers aka 'agents.'
Ride BART WITHOUT YOUR PANTS. You can wear socks, shoes, boots, coats, gloves, shirts and hats - just no pants. Dress warmly as you will have no pants. (Please no thongs, it's just impolite. You might get jumped, groped or thrown in jail) The hard part is to be completely solid about it. Do not break a smile or get all giggly about it. You have to pretend like you don't know any of the other pantless riders. And when asked about it, don't acknowledge the wierdness. You should be acting like it is perfectly normal to have been waiting for and riding BART without your pants!
1) Willing to take pants off on BART
2) Able to keep a straight face about it
When: Saturday, January 12 at 3:00 PM, Sharp! (Over by around 5:30)
Where: I'm thinking we should meet across the street from Embarcadero station, but I'm open to ideas here.
Bring: A backpack or other place to stow pants once they've dropped.
Do NOT bring: A camera, this would make things waaay too obvious
Wear: Normal winter clothes (hat, gloves, etc)
Further instructions to follow.
INVITE EVERYONE! It needs to be amazing.
Soooo, let me know if you're interested in going with me and maybe I'll have the nerve to take off my pants!!!
