How 'bout a Delta Gateway rendevous?

We're interested in a Pittsburg or Antioch (California) rendezvous mid-January. Criteria is friendly/accommodating acceptance by a marina for several boats and a great restaurant within walking distance. Hopefully the weather will be like it was a couple of weeks ago.


Any recommendations or interested parties?

Hey Ray, love the new avatar! Now that's what I call a toy boat! But I gotta tell you, your boat looked MUCH larger in your old avatar.

I like toy boats I figure I can shrink her down to travel size when necessary...

The weekend of January 12/13 is best for us. Otherwise won't be available again until mid-February (New Orleans/Caribbean voyage).

Mark,

Thanks for setting this up. I am "on board". Pretty much any weekend will do, but I sure would like to get a break in this weather - feel like I am living in Seattle!
If you all settle on Pittsburg, it's just a short run down river. If Antioch (Humphrey's I guess), it's just a short walk up the dock.

Checked out the highest-rated restaurants nearby Pittsburg and Antioch marinas. According to the Internet, all are closed: Liberty Hotel in Pittsburg and Humphrey's and Pueblo Nuevo in Antioch. Anyone have recommendations/suggestions?

Mark,

Unfortunately I am not as familiar with Pittsburg as I wish I was. I do recall not long ago when we stopped by there was a bicycle race going on and several establishments were packed, lines out the door. It is a few blocks to walk from the marina, but they seemed adequate enough. Like I say though, unfortunately I have not been back lately.
As for Antioch, nothing there but Humphrey's, though it does have an excellent view.

Al,

That is one of the ones I was thinking of that was always busy.
But, it is a bit of a walk from the marina.

It's not a toy boat, Ray, but a model boat.

You're right... so we all ride around in model boats?!! How does January 12th and 13th sound to the rest of the Delta gang?

I would totally make the run up from Monterey but I'm out of the country from the 10 to the 23rd. Follow up in the spring?
