If you can generate a custom rendering of a particular geographical area, opening (and closing) hours could be useful.  For example, if you are scheduling an all-day business meeting that includes a lunch break, it would be useful to give attendees a map that showed all restaurants that are within a certain radius from the meeting, and would be open at lunchtime.
