Planning on having more than one drink Saturday night? Leave the car at home and hop on the Metro Transit system, where rides are free from 6 p.m. until the last route. And, as always, in case you're still undecided about what you'll be doing, we've dug around and found five New Year's weekend events that should tickle your 2012 fancy: 1) "New Year's Eve" at Showplace Icon: A couple years ago, a horribly bad yet intriguingly mediocre film titled "Valentine's Day" came out, starring a barrage of celebrities ranging from talented to talentless.
