hi there!

suppose i invite a friend (a man) to have lunch with me!

then, one day before the lunch i want to write him to ask if
our lunch is still good. how should i write that in a very informal way?

"IS OUR DATE/COMMITMENT/APPOINTMENT/ENCOUNTER/MEETING GOOD FOR TOMMOROW?"

"Lunch" is just an example. it could be anything else related to having fun!

thanks!

Here are some informal examples to say/write to a friend:

Are we still good for tomorrow?
Are we still good for lunch tomorrow?
Are you still good for tomorrow?
Are you still good for lunch tomorrow?
Does lunch still work for you tomorrow?
Does lunch still work for tomorrow?
Does lunch tomorrow still work?
Does lunch tomorrow still work for you?
Are we still on for tomorrow?
Are we still on for lunch tomorrow?

Enjoy!

Well, it actually depends on how you actually see him. If you see him as a very good friend, then all you have to ask is “are you coming tomorrow”? But if he is just a friend not that close, then ask like this “Are we good for lunch tomorrow”.

I use "Are we still on for tomorrow" with very good friends too.
