      A watering hole favoured by Georgia Straight staff is going through a transition.

      The Academic Public House at 1619 West Broadway closed this week.

      Word on the street is that the venue will soon become the second Storm Crow Tavern in Vancouver.

      The first one at 1305 Commercial Drive bills itself as "Planet Hollywood for geeks, a sports bar for nerds: a place where gamers, sci-fi and fantasy fans can hang out".

      "There are no endless sports broadcasts here… we show only classic science fiction, fantasy and horror films on our bigscreen TV," the website states.
