The example sentence is wrong, for one. I cannot find any cites for this verb, either. -- Liliana 21:48, 21 October 2011 (UTC)

No, the example sentence is right. It's this verb that's wrong. It should be zu Abend essen. —Angr 22:38, 21 October 2011 (UTC)
Hmm, is that even an idiomatic expression? One could argue zu Abend warrants an entry, but zu Abend essen looks very much like SoP to me. -- Liliana 22:40, 21 October 2011 (UTC)
I found one cite: "Haben Sie Zeit, mit mir abendzuessen?" I'll look for more later. - -sche (discuss) 22:41, 21 October 2011 (UTC)
On de.wiktionary it is tagged with {{Austria}}, a possible indicator? -- Liliana 22:49, 21 October 2011 (UTC)
Yeah, that's my experience — that it's southern dialectal. The cite I mention above is from a Viennese author. - -sche (discuss) 00:44, 22 October 2011 (UTC)
+1 more Viennese author and +w:Martin Walser, this is cited, and tagged as "southern Germany and Austria". - -sche (discuss) 01:03, 22 October 2011 (UTC)
Cool! Then I'm closing this as rfv-passed -- Liliana 19:02, 25 October 2011 (UTC)
