Another good reason not to completely let your ass fall apart during winter's dreary latter half: The Red Light's Co-Ed Naked Shopping Spree is right around the corner on Sunday, Feb 19. Four contestants (two girls, two boys) will be chosen in a drawing to compete in the event, which is now in its sixth year (plus some alternates for when people inevitably chicken out). The things proceed much as you'd imagine: The contestants are given three minutes three minutes to race around the shop in their birthday suits, loading on as much clothing as possible—in front of the general public, who is invited to attend—and whoever winds up with the most items wins, going home with everything on their back plus a $100 GC to the store, plus "socks by Gumball Poodle, donuts from VooDoo Donuts, music from Made in China Records, pins, stickers and card packs from PORK magazine and free passes to Hidden Springs Nudist Club’s members-only rec night." Additionally, Prince cover band Erotic City will perform a free set.
This is the sixth year running for the Spree, and word is that almost twice as many submissions as last year have already come in, but if you're ready to throw your name in this pile, that's simple enough. Make a purchase between now and the 16th, and just say the word at checkout (18+ only though). Good buck-naked luck!
