OK, so let me weigh in...: I _know_ I'm going to be seriously tired
tomorrow night, except (perhaps, with some luck:-) very early on, as
I'm going to have a long and intense workday before it; so, from my
subjective POV the tradeoff is -- am I going to be dozing at the end
of the presentation (if we have socialtime _before_), or am I going to
be dozing through socialtime (if we have it _after_).  Overall, I'd
(marginally) prefer the first option.

Sorry to spoil the nice gender-axis alignment, but then, I tend to do
that (I guess that, according to our great State's great governor,
this makes me a "girlyman":-).

Likewise, except s/get to/be awake for/ :-).
