Fresh off of her MTV VMAs performance and the corresponding Video Vanguard Award, Jennifer Lopez is getting back to work — but not heading to the studio or the set. She’s heading for more paparazzi pics.  

JLo and A-Rod slip out the back of Craig’s in West Hollywood after a dinner date at the hotspot.  

You would think there’s only one restaurant in Los Angeles. If you want to be seen, this is the place to go, but really it’s the place to go if you want to end up on blogs. Thanks for dining. 

Also dining at the celeb hotspot was the singer’s dancer ex, Casper Smart. Awkward. Maybe that’s why they slipped out the backdoor.
