Remember when Pappi Swarner announced the Valley Pub in Tacoma would reopen soon? He wasn't just loaded on 7 Seas Brewing's Life jacket IPA. The news is true.

Brothers Justin and Robbie Peterson, responsible for the Eleven Eleven on Hilltop Tacoma, and X Group Restaurants, of Masa, Asado, Engine House No. 9 and Choripan, have joined forces to bring life back to the Valley Pub.

John Xitco of X Group tells me, "They have beards and we have scruff, and you can anticipate the Dome District dive Valley Pub to reopen on or around August 1."

Team Valley Pub is knee deep in a remodel, which will include taxidermy and lots of diamonds, "neon, wood and painted," and a famous "Pillars of Pennies" that Xitco says, "You will just have to see it."

Entertainment will include live music on some nights and a jukebox on others.

The "pub" moniker won't quite be right since liquor will be available as well as 12 draft handles pouring ice cold craft brew plus a wicked bottle selection to boot.

Of the pub's grub Xitco says, "The menu will have similarities to Eleven Eleven, but with newly created specialties just for the Valley.  We will have several ‘grab and go' menu items for the quick lunch break too."

And finally, Xitco closes by telling me, "A guy once ate glass at the Valley. We would like to welcome him back."
