Since I first introduced you to the Tube Dude several months ago, the concept has really taken off. Tube Dudes are now showing up all over Sarasota. I spotted this one, sporting a life jacket and canister of pool chemicals, waving to traffic outside a swimming pool supply store. I just love 'em. Check out the official Tube Dude website and learn how the recession led to the creation of the Tube Dude. And, while you're there, look for Sarasota Daily Photo. The SDP staff just discovered we're featured on the Tube Dude homepage. Excellent!
