I've never heard it in Texas (Houston), or for that matter in California
(Bay Area). However I've heard it in New Jersey (Trenton) and on Long
Island (Hicksville).

Interestingly enough, it's pretty close to the German construction, e.g.
"Gehst du mit?"


P.S. Peter (Richardson), do you know if there's any relation? I
wondered about that when I heard it in English.
