I like the idea of the evening starting at sunset. A glass of wine while watching the sun go down before going out. A few moments of peace before crowds and a rowdy amount of people and the loud sounds.
Before you ever think you're going to have an overwhelming night, think about allowing yourself moments of piece. Rather than a pregame, take a few moments to enjoy getting in touch with yourself. Take some moments to settle within before giving so much of your attention away.
