actually - not really.  I don't imagine the venues provide a large
percentage of the ads.  Maybe they would be more visible, but the
numbers would come mostly from users + larger internet community.

I want to stay pretty neutral on that.  I would rather just say "here
are all the classified ads in a given area".

In terms of promoting events / sales / etc *of* a venue - that's more
a question of design than anything else - IMHO.  As in "where does
this info show up?"
