    Let's go get some champagne.

    What does "Let's go get some champagne." mean?

    Re: Let's go get some champagne.

    The person wants the others who are with him/her to join him/her in going someplace to drink/buy champagne.

    Re: Let's go get some champagne.

    It could mean simply going to the other side of the room to get some glasses of champagne which are waiting on a table, or where the bar is. This might be what would happen at a party or a wedding reception. It could mean going to the other side of town if that's where the nearest shop which sells champagne is.

    I understand now.

    I have one more question: is sentence "Let's go to getsome champagne." correct?

    Re: Let's go get some champagne.

    That's not natural.

    You could say ''Let's go and get some champagne'.

    Re: Let's go get some champagne.

    It certainly works in AmE. Once upon a time, I would have said the "and" was needed in BrE at all times but I just don't think it's the case any more. I myself said "Shall we go get some food?" to a friend last night.

    Edit: Apologies, I didn't realise Rover's response was to the suggestion of "Let's go to get some champagne". I thought it referred to the OP's example. However, I find no problems with "Let's go to get some champagne" either.
