    Riley Hawk just opened Steel Mill Coffee, a new coffee shop and record store, on Monday, Feb. 4, in Oceanside.

    Need an extra buzz? Check out Tony Hawk's son Riley's new coffee shop and record store that just opened this week in Oceanside.

    It's the latest project from the pro skater, who also fronts a local sludge punk band called Warish that just released their self-titled debut EP.

    The new shop is called Steel Mill Coffee and features some hand-picked vinyl for sale, ranging from "obscure hard rock to psychedelic," according to Eater San Diego. To top it all of, they're currently serving James Coffee Co. beans, the roasting company co-owned by ex-Angels and Airwaves guitarist, David Kennedy.

    It's not exactly a new venture for the Hawk family, considering Tony was an investor in Blue Bottle Coffee. That paid off handsomely for him, so hopefully it does for Riley as well.
