late Virginia B. Wood would have been happy to know that her memorial service will be at a restaurant that serves queso and margaritas.

Even though Wood didn’t drink alcohol, she loved the interior Mexican food from Yves Macías and Marisela Sanche, whom she
met when they opened
El Meson taqueria on Burleson Road and, later,
El Meson restaurant on South Lamar.

From 3 to 6 p.m. April 8, El Meson is where friends, family and fans will gather for a memorial service for the
longtime Austin Chronicle food writer and restaurant critic. The event will be open to the public.
