Dora, the wife of the mayor Harry Porter, is said to be attending bingo in Bridgeport on the night of the Founder’s Firelight Festival.
Bridgeport is a city in Connecticut with its own seaport, and historically a manufacturing city. Its claims to fame are having showman P.T. Barnum as their mayor in the late 19th century, being the place where the first Subway restaurant opened, and being the birthplace of the Frisbee.
The city is about 40 minutes drive from Wallingford, where Stars Hollow appears to be located, and there are two bingo halls in Bridgeport where Dora could have been playing.
