Is there an API to get "Local events" from Google Maps?
The service is available only in a few cities: London, New York or Zurich. And you need to click on the Events option.
I'm trying to get such events as an RSS file, or to export an XML file.
I don't know the specific 'events' you are talking about, but your starting point should probably be GData page.
The data most probably be coming from Google Calendar or Google Base. Both of these already have API.
