This is easily the best place for #friedfairfood at the #NCStateFair. The 1853 Grille area has everything from traditional fried Oreos and funnel cakes to deep-fried cinnamon rolls. If you want fair food, this is the place to get it! It's right by the #DortonArena at the fairgrounds.

The #BarrelMonster made an appearance at the #NCStateFair last year. It was first created by #NCState student Joseph Carnevale in 2009 when #HillsboroughStreet was just starting to reinvent itself, and it got plenty of local and national attention. (It's an interesting story. Check out this NBC article about it: http://goo.gl/NQmctu.)

#HarrelsonHall was pretty legendary in its time, but everyone's grown to hate this round building. It opened in November 1961 and, as the first cylindrical building to be built on a college campus, was first described as "strikingly attractive." Of course, that didn't last long.

Rumor had it the building was sinking, which #NCState quickly shot down: "It is not now, nor has it ever been, sinking."

There are a bunch of articles out there that are interesting reads. Here are some of the best:

A circular building means pie-shaped everything, from classrooms to bathroom stalls. #RIPHarrelson

The infamous #Harrelson ramp. This thing went up to the top floor and made anyone dizzy, but the stairs were perilously steep, so this was a better alternative. It was an unofficial #NCStatebucketlist item to roll down this ramp on a skateboard or rolling chair. #RIPHarrelson

#Harrelson vibes from the 9th floor of the #Bookstacks in #DHHill library. So there was a lounge at the very top of Harrelson that you could only access after walking up the center ramp for ages and almost falling down from dizziness. WiFi up there was decent. The couches were a little outdated; think '80s sitcom.

Before it was torn down in Summer 2016, #HarrelsonHall used to sit across from #DHHill library on the #Brickyard. There were a bunch of pine trees growing beside it and they made it look dark and a little spooky. #RIPHarrelson

The #WaffleHouse at #MissionValley is awesome. It's open 24 hours and has #NCState-themed decor everywhere, including a banner with the lyrics to the #FightSong hanging up by the retro Jukebox. There's another location across from #MeredithCollege on #HillsboroughStreet, but this one is closest. Because that's what we college kids love: cheap eats late at night.
