Memorial service for food writer Virginia B. Wood set for April 8 at El Meson

The 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, who died in early March. The event will be open to the public.
