READING, Pa. -

Yankees third baseman Alex Rodriguez is in town.

He's receiving the star treatment.

After last night's game A-Rod and a group of friends enjoyed dinner at Panevino Italian Restaurant in Reading.

Included in that group was A-Rod's girlfriend, former WWE diva Torrie Wilson.

Now it turns out Panevino is actually closed on Mondays but the owner made an exception for the star player.

"They couldn't have been nicer and more appreciative. It was a great evening for all of us," said David Brennan, owner and chef at Panevino.

Brennan calls last night one of those once-in-a-lifetime chances.

And it turns out, he did all of this even though he's a lifelong Phillies fan and despises the Yankees.

When he told A-Rod that he says A-Rod laughed and said he understood.
