Make sure the venue is properly tagged, with address.  Add local
parking and transit amenities, etc so that the map is really useful.

Link to that venue with a permalink, or even better, with a shortlink
and marker whenever you want to provide a map.

If you want to display the location on your LUG web site, consider
using OpenLayers to put a nice big LUG logo on the map (or Tux the
Penguin) in your location.

Some problems aren't tagging problems.
