CityBeat editorial assistant snapped our cover image


New CityBeat editorial assistant Torrey Bailey took the cover photo of downtown’s omnipresent Shirtless Guy (Don Flores). A recent graduate from San Diego State University, Bailey started with the paper as an intern and has stepped in immediately to anchor our monthly Neighborhood Watch features, beginning in January with North Park. For downtown, we asked Bailey to look for the city’s colorful characters and she hunted down Flores, who calls himself the Beast of San Diego (but also is referred to as The Shake Weight Guy because that’s one of the props he uses to get tourists to take photos with him). Read more insight about the Beast as well as more on the colorful characters Bailey found down in 92101.
