The Dallas Cowboys quarterback, 29, was spotted out at Hollywood hotspot MyHouse on Friday – the night he was supposed to be at Simpson's 29th Barbie-and-Ken-themed birthday bash – for "a typical guys night out," says one onlooker. "Tony's table was packed with people. He was talking to several girls throughout the night."
According to a source, his friends decided to take their recently single pal out to "lift his spirits. His friends wanted him to have some fun before football training camp starts."
Done and done: Romo recovered from his late night Friday romp by lounging poolside with his pals at the Sunset Marquis Hotel in West Hollywood on Saturday afternoon. "The guys were mellow, had a few beers and Tony seemed fine," says a witness. "There were no girls around. It seemed more like a relaxed boys weekend."
By Monday the guys were recharged ready for more, hitting up West Hollywood's Key Club – ironically the same place where Romo serenaded Simpson for her birthday last year. "The night was non-eventful," says manager Mark "Skip" Bucculoa. "Tony stayed low-key. He just rolled in with a group of guys."
Regardless, Romo better take advantage of the free time while he can: The NFL star is set to start pre-season training on July 29.
