One other thing .. the draft proposal for amenity=events_venue is for "a 
stand alone facility" and shows a photo of a building.


What about when the 'event' is in a garden, a park, a mountain top or on 
a beach? These places are not "stand alone" and some are used by the 
public at other times.


A restaurant may hold a wedding reception (in a separated room but 
probably a common entry) ... and so you have the situation where on OSM 
you have
with the tag

Needs more thinking on the event_venue thing.

But I think there are enough wedding reception venues to have there own 

A range of examples can be found here

A dojo, a beach, a hotel, a fort (in the middle of Sydney Harbour), a 
zoo, and on.
there is a very large variety... I think it is a property tag .. not a 
key:feature tag.
