7. So I was kinda right ... you're coming from Vallejo ...

Not a LOT of places one would likely be coming from where they'd go to Concord via Martinez

When I was young, I'd have said Martinez was a slightly upscale version of Benicia/Vallejo/Pinole. More working class, higher minority population ... like those places are (or at least were).

Nowadays it's a lot more akin to it's wealthier neighbors in other directions like Pleasant Hill and Concord.

Still I wouldn't even expect this to happen in Orinda or Danville, it's not just a money thing. Martinez is the CC county seat, and it's definitely a liberal county, even if it is pretty much all expensive now.

If you're heading across on the 4 around lunch time (edit: n/m you have lunch plans ... maybe your cuz would wanna go here, it's not far from Vallejo!), and you've never been, you should pop down to Port Costa, it's about 10-15 minutes off the 4. It's like a town out of time, a very cool old place. Bit of a Biker hangout on weekends. I recommend The Warehouse, very cool joint. Though I'll warn ya, you're gonna want a beer there
