By the mid-nineties he was Director at Limelight, Tunnel, Palladium and Club USA, becoming a widely known face of the New York clubbing scene.
People mentioned in the memoir include the likes of Jack Nicholson, Bruce Willis, Sir Richard Branson, Leonardo DiCaprio, Rudy Giuliani, and Snoop Dogg, among others.
In an interview with Magnetic Magazine Adelman said: “Most people are surprised when I say I consider myself a writer who got sidetracked by nightlife for three decades. When I was living in Hollywood, I began keeping a journal of my nightlife adventures. I showed it to my literary agent, who burst out laughing, telling me it read like "a season of Curb Your Enthusiasm on acid." That was in 2005, and it has taken me this long to complete it due to my work schedule.”
