Foursquare plugin fails if response contains a venue that has been deleted

Bug Description

The foursquare plugin gets the most recent checkin of each of the user's friends when it asks for data. If a venue has been deleted since the user's friend has checked into it, but it is still that friend's most recent checkin, the foursquare plugin fails to parse the response correctly. This is because the only venue data returned is the name of the venue.

This causes the foursquare timeline to stop updating until the friend has checked into a venue that does exist.
