Resolved questions
What does the phase "What do you got going on?" mean? Is it grammatically correct?

Why "do" is used in this phrase not "have" for example? Why "got" not "get"?
The context is this:
Dude, I'm a single man. Saturday night is my party night.
Really? What do you got going on?
I don't know,
maybe drive down to Hollywood,
hit a few hot spots,
see if I can get lucky.

    No - that is not grammatically correct.
    Where is the text from? Not everyone talks in a grammatically correct way!

    You could say 'What have you got going on?', or, 'What do you have going on?'


    Sasha. Hello. How are you?

    It is a terrible grammar. A proper grammar would be as follows:

    "What do you HAVE going on?"

    You might also say; "What do you have planned for Saturday night?"
