Now that Gears & Grub has officially wrapped up, l'm going to say it. I heard too many people calling the downtown Erie event Gears & GRUBS. This is incorrect because:
- The word "grub" is a slang term for food.
- The word "grubs" refers to small white worms.
Obviously, one of these is worth celebrating at a festival, and one is the disgusting larvae of beetles that can ruin your lawn.
Let's agree to be more careful with our words in 2020.
