83 Degrees, formerly 38 Degrees, is set to open Wednesday night in Carlsbad Village.
Carlsbad Patch is meeting with general manager of the newly renamed 83 degrees Wednesday morning and will have a full feature story on the new establishment.
Meanwhile, according to Dan with TheFullPint.com, who is also the PR director for 38 Degrees Alehouse and Grill in Alhambra, "We reached out to Mr. Pavagadhi to seek clarification, and to make sure this isn’t a hoax. 'Yes, I have changed the name to 83 Degrees Carlsbad. The guy in Alhambra has made such a big deal about this, I just don’t want to deal with this any further. We are so far away from each-other, I’m still not understanding what the big deal is. I am going to use this publicity that he has given me, and continue to launch, but as 83 Degrees rather than 38 Degrees.'
