FARGO - Go/Do, a Fargo-based start-up centered on a mobile app that keeps track of events and activities, recently added an “Eat and Drink” category and is being expanded to include areas outside Fargo-Moorhead.
Go/Do’s new food category will feature bars, restaurants, coffee shops and ice cream shops. The app also showcases special events such as happy hour specials, karaoke or trivia nights.
“There is anticipation to start using the new features. People are ‘angry excited’ about the second version, meaning they want it and they want it now – which is a good problem to have!” Go/Do founder Cindy Gillund said in a news release.
Gillund created the Go/Do app to compile events in the F-M area for parents to use to search out activities for their children. The functionality was expanded to include opportunities for date nights, evenings with friends (with or without the kids), and to entertain business clients.
Gillund is adding activities in Manhattan, Kan., to the app, and plans to include activities in Detroit Lakes, Minn., this fall.

A community coordinator will act as a representative to talk to businesses and check out events in Manhattan and keep the app up to date.
Another new feature of the app will be a 21-plus filter for users, helpful for the app’s college towns, non-drinkers, and families.
Go/Do is a client of the North Dakota State University Research and Technology Park, which helps develop technology-based businesses.
Go/Do is free for users while businesses pay to post their information. The app is available for iPhone and Android users.
