Capitol Impov invites you to meet at Hancock Park by L’Enfant Plaza Metro for a brief pre-ride meeting starting at 2PM and to release people into the metro thereafter for the ride.

If you want to continue the party, there will also be an afterparty at Level One / 30 Degreesnear the DuPont Circle Metro starting at 5pm for drinks, food, and no-pants fun.

Remember – the goal is to appear as if you had no idea that you were missing pants or that you knew but didn’t think it was a big deal.

Make sure you have a place to keep your pants on your person and hidden like a bag or backpack.

Also – if any figure of authority tells you to put your pants back on, do as they say. Unfortunately indecency laws are entirely subjective and while we haven’t had any major problems in the past, we’d like to keep on DC Metro’s good side so the event can continue for years to come.

See you at the park!
