'With' is when you take your wife along. Kids & family could be included but the wife is the main intended party when one goes 'with'. Another North Karnataka usage that saves the sayer a lot of time, & also the shame of appearing like a tuspataki who gives his wife too much importance by mentioning her.

Usage

That nextouse Mahantesh Seganimane has called for night party tomarrow. *saying with groan* I am going 'with' appa! Aal others are 'without' anthe, bleddy baskets.
