Blue Hill Meteorological Observatory, located at the top of a scenic mountain range south of Boston, is a unique American institution. Founded in 1885 by Abbott Lawrence Rotch as a private scientific center for the study and measurement of the atmosphere, it was the site of many pioneering weather experiments and discoveries. The earliest kite soundings of the atmosphere in North America in the 1890s and the development of the radiosonde in the 1930s occurred at this historic site.

With the arrival of fall comes the return of seasonal beers, cozy flannels, and of course – Sunday football. While your home team’s victory is most important on game days, enjoying the day and all of fall’s glory at the perfect tailgate is a close second. That’s why every Sunday through the NFL season, Victory Point in Marina Bay invites you to throw on your flannels or jerseys and head to the dockside establishment for Victory Sundays, an all-American football party complete with all the game watching necessities of a tailgate paradise.
