YPlan wants to make sure you always know what you’re doing tonight.

The curated events list app is raising $12 million in round of funding led by General Catalyst Partners. The company says it plans to use this funding to expand its footprint beyond London to new cities, including New York, where it’s set to land later this year. (In addition to the latest funding, the company also raised $1.7 million last July.)

Launched last November, YPlan offers a daily curated shortlist of a city’s most notable events. It’s catching on, too: Months after its launch, YPlan has already been downloaded 200,000 times, and according to YPlan, it has already hit 10 percent of London phones.

Of course it’s too early to say whether YPlan will reach that level of success when it launches in New York, but we’ll know for sure in the second half of this year. (If you want to help YPlan along, the company is already looking for developers for its New York expansion.)
