Opening Sunday morning, the promotion inspired fans to gear up for the event in style.

But it won't be around for long

To promote tomorrow night's Season 3 premiere of the Emmy-award winning "Breaking Bad" spinoff,  AMC opened the pop-up in a Lower Manhattan parking lot Sunday morning (and will shut it down Monday night).

Circa was there when the restaurant opened to the media Sunday morning. It's open to the public from 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. Sunday, and from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. Monday, at the Icon parking lot at 243 Pearl St. Then it will disappear, much like many of "Breaking Bad's" most notorious characters.
