When I search for "bar near moses lake, washington" on http://www.openstreetmap.org/ it brings no results. Am I using the wrong format?

Cross ref: A similar question is nominatim-returns-no-results-when-searching-with-a-postcode (but also about other stuff) and nominatim-radius-search is about the format.

There simply are no bars and pubs entered in our data for this city (see overpass turbo query). Instead try airport near Moses Lake, Grant County, Washington – that gives you a result. Or try bar near Frankfurt am Main – many results.

I hope you help to fill this gap if/when you are there to make a survey! Just adding your favourite bar would be a great start!
