How is Miso on Meramec's Miso Scary party different from all the rest of the costume-coated goings-on this week? Firstly, with the right frame of mind, Miso's basement locale (16 North Meramec Avenue, Clayton) could easily double as a dark, mysterious dungeon packed with all your favorite boos. To top that, the eighth annual bash takes place on Thursday, October 30 — the night before Halloween. This means you're guaranteed more wears (and scares!) than ever out of that Sarah Palin mask. Plus, DJ Hugh Tyson will trade in "Monster Mash" for hip-hop tracks to maximize your dancing pleasure. And, of course, admission is free, and there's a costume contest — who could ask for more? The haunted hoedown starts at 9 p.m.; for more information call 314-863-7888 or visit www.misolounge.com.
