Gail Van Campen sees all sorts of customers at her late-night hot dog stand in Bricktown.
Self-made billionaire entrepreneurs, though, are something of a rarity.
But not on Sunday.
Hot Dog OKC had a visit from Mark Cuban, the Dallas Mavericks owner who is in town for his team’s playoff series against the Thunder. He had his picture taken with Van Campen — no word yet on the hot dog that he ordered — and then she posted it on the stand’s Twitter page, @HotDogOKC.

Not long after, Cuban (@mcuban) replied to her.
Hey, say what you will about the brash owner who’s known for his courtside tirades and his referee lambastings, Thunder fans, but that was a pretty cool thing for Cuban to do. Monday morning, Van Campen was clearly still thinking about her encounter with a guy who turned a college start-up into a business that was purchased by Yahoo! for almost $6 billion.
