Eastern BBQ edged out the Blue Devils and will take on the NC Zoo in the round of eight. You chose the Blueridge Mountains to battle it out with Mayberry. Western BBQ tried to hold on but the Tar Heels proved to be too much. NASCAR had the speed but you love the taste of Cheerwine more. The Outer Banks overcame the Deacs while the sweet sensation of Krispy Kreme dominated furniture.
North Carolina is the place to be when it comes to basketball so in the spirit of March Madness, we created our own bracket.
Help us narrow down this Sweet 16 of our favorite things in North Carolina. Who will take home the top spot? Some of the competitors include the Blue Ridge Mountains, Krispy Kreme Doughnuts from Winston-Salem, the NC Zoo in Asheboro, Mayberry, inspired by Mount Airy, NASCAR from Charlotte, Cheerwine and of course, the ultimate face off between Eastern and Western-Style Barbecue.
