Contrary to what your physician may suggest, after three straight days of partying, you do not need a dark room, a warm bed, some rest, a good cry, and an IV dose of 1000 milliliters of normal saline.

All you need is more partying. Lots more partying. And even more partying. So it's a good thing that Winter Music Conference and Miami Music Week really ratchets up the ragers today.

Every year, the sheer volume of parties planned for Friday vastly exceeds the Tuesday-through-Thursday stretch — though Saturday is probably still the most vital organ-damaging 24 hours of the week.

So c'mon, forget “recovery time.” Go clubbing today. And tonight. And then we'll meet you at the afterhours.

Here are today's best parties.
