Panty Party on Powell Street

There's something kind of ironic (and idiotic) about stripping down so you can get free clothes.

But all around the globe, people are doing just that. The first 100 participants who line up outside of Desigual on Powell Street on Friday morning with nothing on but their lingerie will get to shop for free funky Spanish outfits.

Sure it will be damn cold to wait outside all night for the store to open, but if San Francisco's nudists can bear the Bay Area chill, then you can do it for a free outfit!

But because we don't have the, ahem, ability to brave a cold night on the sidewalk in San Francisco, we found a way to cheat (sorta).

Desigual says people can submit Instagram photos of their favorite outfits from the store, and the users with the three most-liked photos will win a spot to shop when Desigual opens its doors to people in panties come Friday morning. Don't forget to add the competition's hashtag to your submitted photos.

So put on your intimates --  thongs, boxer shorts, loinclothes, skivvies, whatever it is you wear -- and come party with your pants off, because let's face it, that's what this is really about.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
