New York, Aug 19 : While his marriage is going through a rough patch, Alex Rodriguez was spotted squiring two different women last week.
The Yankee star stepped out with a mystery blonde, starting with a cozy dinner at Dan Marino's in South Beach. The duo shared a 'fairly animated' dinner conversation.
"They looked to be thoroughly enjoying themselves," the New York Post quoted said one source.
After leaving the eatery joint, the pair walked to nearby nightspot Bougainvillea. There, they sat at a secluded outside table.
As they got up to leave, the duo seemed surprised to be greeted by a photographer's flash.
"Up until that point, I don't think they thought anyone had noticed them," a witness said.
After being spotted, A-Rod ran across the street, "trying to make out like he wasn't with her," said the source.
After learning that witnesses weren't buying the ploy, Rodriguez said, "This is nothing. She's an old friend of mine. Leave us alone."
They then got into his Mercedes and sped off into the Miami.
Back in New York, Rodriguez hit the roof of Soho House with a tall Asian beauty with 'good hair,' according to sources.
And this time, instead of trying to pretend he wasn't with a woman, A-Rod - decked out in jeans, a white T-shirt and black patent-leather Nikes - was "out-of-his-way nice" to the staff.
"He seemed in great spirits," one source said.
Just after his date made her way downstairs, with A-Rod following a few minutes behind her. Then they jumped into a hybrid SUV cab and took off.
