I do a similar thing for Freemap, actually querying the underlying PostGIS
then keep zooming in until you can see pub symbols. Click on any of them.
I use OpenLayers code to convert the zoom to a Mercator lat/lon, then the
PHP script osmlookup.php to query the PostGIS database.
for the client side code, note the osmLookup() function.
For the server side code, download
http://www.free-map.org.uk/downloads/freemap.tar.bz2 and look at
BTW will try and get round to doing clickable POIs on the main OSM site
soon, got sidetracked into adding .osm support for Mapnik. :-)
