German sentence structure? Having a good vocabulary doesn't help a lot if you are struggling with the words order, i searched an found about the Time + manner + place, but sometimes it is confusing, for example, is it "Ich möchte heute abend mit dir etwas essen" oder "Ich möchte heute abend etwas mit dir essen", etwas isn't time, manner, or place, so where should it come in a sentence?

"Etwas" is the accusative object in this sentence. The most natural way to place it would be right before "essen", i.e. as in your first suggestion. Swapping it with "mit dir" also works, but is less common.
