I could really use an API call or data set that included ...

maps a location (latitude/longitude) to the nearest, most interesting venue.

Given a lat/long, I want to know what the most interesting venue nearby is.

So, instead of saying that you're near 1000 W 6th, it says you're near "Rounders" or "Infochimps HQ" -- sorted by some score that takes into a tasteful combination of interesting and proximity.
