Focusing in the dark

Photographers:

Any tips on how to focus on an object in the dark when it's too dark for auto-focus to work, even with the AF-assist, and it's also too dark to manually focus looking through the viewfinder?

Anything better than trial-and-error? I suppose to a large degree it's intuition/memory learned over time, but I'm wondering if there's any rules of thumb or tricks that might help.

(I finally got a new tripod after losing my camera mount ages ago and have been having fun with long exposure shots again...)
