Ken, one of the nice things about slang and jargon (in this case) is that
there are no rules.

You suggested:

1) Grab-n-go

2) Grab n' go

3) Grab 'n' go

Of any of these, I'd pick the first one (which was your suggestion), but how
about "Grab & go"?

I went through a similar thing with "Drag & Drop" recently. (Ended up using
the boring but correct "drag and drop".)
