If you’ve had your fill of German beer and enormous pretzels, check out these pop-ups to complete your fall experience.

The Southern pecan and pumpkin flavors are like fall in a cup. The shop rotates about five flavors daily. If you haven’t tasted Talenti, you are in for a treat; it’s noticeably creamier than most. Hurry, they pack up Oct. 10.Bryant Park, 41 W. 40th St.


Central Perk

Twenty years after its premiere, the “Friends” frenzy is still going strong. Until Oct. 18, you can feel like one of the "Friends" (my favorite is Monica) by hanging out in a replica of their favorite cafe, complete with the orange couch, plus contests, sing-alongs and giveaways. The best part: The Eight O'Clock Coffee drinks are free.199 Lafayette St.
