<script src="//cdnjs.cloudflare.com/ajax/libs/underscore.js/1.7.0/underscore-min.js"></script>

$('.mycal').easycal({

minTime : '09:00:00',
maxTime : '19:00:00',
slotDuration : 30,
startDate : '31-10-2015', 
events : getEvents()

});

$('.mycal').easycal({

columnDateFormat : 'dddd, DD MMM',
timeFormat : 'HH:mm',
