I went for pizza last week with some of my friends. We always go to the same place when we go to have dinner, because the food is awesome. After dinner we went drinking. It was great to spend time with them, and we have a lot of fun. Today, we are going to have a look at some different English Grammar patterns that use go. Ready? Let’s go!
We use go + to + verb to show the purpose of our movement:

We also use go + for + noun to show the purpose of our movement:
