In our ongoing ARod opt-out watch, we have this amusing little story, with the headline "ARod's a Yankee Doodle Randy":
The cozy duo dined with two pals at a pricey steakhouse late Sunday night, then headed to a glitzy strip club before making their way to his hotel, where the pair ducked into an elevator and headed upstairs just after midnight.
Cynthia Rodriguez - A-Rod's wife and mother of their 2 1/2-year-old daughter, Natasha - was nowhere to be seen during the slugger's big night out on the town, which occurred the evening before the last-place Bronx Bombers' pathetic 7-2 loss to the Toronto Blue Jays.
And it came as Rodriguez took a room at Toronto's Four Seasons hotel - down the street from the Park Hyatt, where most, if not all of his Yankee teammates and coaches are staying during a three-game stint that ends tonight.
"No comment," Rodriguez said when The Post asked him about his north-of-the-border jaunt with the blonde.

Rodriguez and the blonde, and possibly the two other men, then were driven in one of Harbour Sixty's cars two miles to the Brass Rail, a flashy strip club located on Yonge Street.
The witness saw A-Rod and the woman go into the Brass Rail just after 11 p.m.
Home to what one Web site calls, "Toronto's most beautiful all-nude dancers," the Brass Rail is known for its booming sound system, overflowing crowds, overpriced beers and $20 lap dances - a drop in the bucket for Rodriguez, who has a 10-year contract worth $252 million.
Rodriguez and the blonde spent an hour or so at the Brass Rail, the witness said.
When they walked out of there, A-Rod and the woman were alone.
They then got a cab back to the Four Seasons. Their cab pulled up to the hotel minutes after midnight.
A-Rod then strode into the hotel behind her. He rubbed his nose as if to obscure his face to other people as he joined her at the elevator bank.
As the doors to an elevator opened, he and the blonde got in together, the witness said.
The doors then closed, and they disappeared upstairs.
I think ARod opting out of his deal is a fait accompli, but having the New York Post out his extracurricular activities would seem to increase the likelihood...
