Dell's Sunday Crosswords, Spring 2017, page 53, Diagramless One:

Clue 4 Down: ____ of the evening
Answer: Shank

That's a new one for me. My dictionary says this meaning of shank can be the early or latter or main/best part of a period of time.

"It was just the shank of the evening when the party began."
"They didn't get started until the shank of the morning."
"Don't leave yet, it's just the shank of the evening."

Are any of you familiar with this usage?
