Last night I had a couple of beers with exchange students and fellow Texan Erin Stanford. She goes to Texas State University in San Marcos, Texas, just a few miles down the highway from my hometown Austin. We met at Monk's Café, a restaurant, bakery & bar located on the corner of Vasagatan and Wallingatan. They have a big selection of beers — well over 1,000 differenent varieties. It was fun to chat with someone from “back home” for a while.
