After spending the past three days getting wasted and shaking ass all over SoBe, uhntz-uhntz-ing around Biscayne Bay aboard the Tikki Beach, and getting pruney in the Shelborne's pool, you're fucking pooped on partying.
And like EDM quirkmeister Riva Starr's mustachioed clubber baby, you're whining, "Last night, I was drunk with some chicks in a club ... And tonight, I will drink with some chicks in a club. I'm not sure I want to."
What? Huh? Why? We're in the middle of Winter Music Conference, guy. You're not allowed to be bored. So c'mon ... Check the cut for today's top WMC 2012 parties.
