Swine in the West Village has launched a new happy hour, daily from 3 p.m. to 7 p.m. Anything on tap is discounted, meaning $7 for their entire selection of draft beer and $6 glasses of wine. [Grub Street]

• Former Grub Street–er Alyssa Shelasky will be signing copies of her book, Apron Anxiety, at Eataly this Sunday between 2 p.m. and 4 p.m. [Grub Street]

• December 21 marks the end of the world (if you hadn’t heard), and Left Bank wants to make sure you go out in style: They’ll be offering a timpano (an enormous Italian meat pie cooked into a shell of fresh pasta, otherwise known as that thing at the end of Big Night) as a last meal for any incoming parties who give them 24 hours’ notice.
