"Clearly, Anheuser-Busch knew what it was doing when it placed its 'hospitality tent' full of free beer and grub next to the press center at Tuesday's debate." Adam Martin, New York Magazine, October 17, 2012
About the Word:
The grub that means "food" has the same (less appetizing) origin as the grub that refers to both a soft thick wormlike larva and a slovenly person. All these senses developed from a Middle English word meaning "to dig."
