    "come" before another verb

    Would you like to come have dinner with me?
    He will come pick you up to the restaurant.

    I have a question about come.

    For the sentences above, both "come"s are used before another verb.
    I have learned that one sentence could have only one verb.
    If "to" were placed between verbs, it would make sense to me.

    (Would you like to come to have dinner with me?
    He will come to pick you up to the restaurant.)

    Could you explain this please?

    Re: "come" before another verb

    In informal usage, we sometimes omit to or use and (I'll come and pick you up) instead. They're both correct with to and I would use to in formal language.
