Mint tea (even gum) can perk you up pretty well (I often chew some gum on the way home from a late show; it wakes me up enough to get home, but doesn't keep me up for hours after I get home, as coffee sometimes will).

A bit of time in some brisk cold can wake you up, as can a bit of exercise. Try combining them, by taking a quick walk around the building.

Avoid heavy amounts of carbohydrate, as that can induce sleep, as can foods that contain tryptophans, like milk and turkey.

And if you can, take a nap before the show tonight. I sometimes do that for Thursday shows: I'll get home around 5pm, eat a quick dinner, and nap out between 5:30pm and 8pm or so.
