New bars in East Village/alphabet city?
The bar at Vandaag is pretty nice, and popular, as I observed during my meal there last weekend.
From your listings of DBA, Jimmy's, Zum, etc. it sounds like you like beer bars. Off the top of my head, I'm thinking maybe Klimat, Weschler's, Shoolbred's, McSorley's, Burp Castle, the bar at DBGB would be good visits, too.
