As of 9 a.m. December 31, you were 364 days sober. But by 10 p.m., you were doing keg stands like an out-of-control co-ed. Well, we say what happened in 2007 stays in 2007, so wipe that shame off of your face and climb back onto the wagon while simultaneously recovering from last night’s drunken debauchery. Step one, sleep in. Step two, roll the windows down and enjoy the fresh bay air as you ride to Key Biscayne. By the time you reach the Ritz-Carlton, the greenish tint will have disappeared from your face and you’ll be ready for some culinary first aid.

From noon to 3:30 p.m., chic eatery Cioppino will tend to your wounds at its New Year’s Day Recovery Buffet, either indoors or alfresco on their garden terrace overlooking the ocean. We suggest that you stick to the carbs and proteins on the chow line, but if the hair of the dog is what you’re craving, Prosecco and bloody marys are on the menu. The meal costs $45 for adults, $15 for kids 12 and younger. Call 305-365-4286 for reservations.
