- Data Science in Media Social at Virgil's
This is a casual get together with other folks who are in Media Data Science & Analytics as well as other Data Scientists. Virgil's has a great bar with reasonable prices and fantastic food if anyone wants to hang out for a bite after. There's music, but it's not so loud you can't have a good conversation and there's usually plenty of room. Feel free to bring friends, but if you can include that info in the RSVP it would be helpful just to get an idea of headcount.
