usage question

My friend and I were just discussing going to see a movie, and she said, "Would you rather Monday or Tuesday?" This made sense to me, but it occured to me that in my mind, standard usage would be either, "Would you rather go Monday or Tuesday?" or "Would you prefer Monday or Tuesday?". Would what she said be standard usage to you? Where do you live? Her parents are European (her mom's Dutch), so I know she gets some of her dialect from that (we live in Cleveland, OH).
