Pro skateboarder turned entrepreneur and reality TV star, Rob Dyrdek, is doing something today that only the Simpsons have done before – He’s designed a themed 7-Eleven store! Along with the new 7-Eleven Urban Skate Store that he designed, he will also be unveiling his Safe Spot Skate Spot in North Hollywood.

If you’re looking for something to do to fill your afternoon, head out to North Hollywood Park for the Grand Opening of Rob Dyrdek’s new skate park and 7-Eleven.
He was kind enough to talk about the event on KROQ this morning, and told us that included in the day’s events would be a speech by his cousin, who also appears on the TV show, Rob Dyrdek’s Fantasy Factory on MTV, in order to conquer his awkwardness and fear of public speaking.
