The legendary Dow Twins dominated the world of Black disco and entertainment for an unprecedented fifty years. Attractive, charismatic, and identical, they had a Midas touch when it came to business ... and women. This memoir tells their amazing story from their beginnings hosting parties for their peers-black college students-to their years as managers and promoters at two of the hottest black nightclubs in New York City- Justine's and Leviticus, both owned by another black entrepreneurial group, The Best of Friends (TBOF).

After thirteen years with TBOF (both Midtown Manhattan clubs lasting nearly a decade longer than Studio 54), The Dow Twins opened their own nightclub and restaurant, Manhattan Proper (which thrived for 32 years), and gave countless roving parties all over Manhattan from the South Street Seaport to the Copacabana and from the Waldorf Astoria to Riverside Park. Always innovative in their choice of venues, for 25 years The Dow Twins hosted one of the city's most iconic and well attended annual galas for 2,500 guests on the USS Intrepid aircraft carrier docked on the Hudson River.

Over time, The Twins amassed an exclusive hand-picked guest list of thousands of upscale Black and Latino party-goers who followed them for decades-and not only for their parties. The Dow Twins also co-hosted Black ski trips to elite resorts from Vail, Colorado to Nagano, Japan and vacations from West Palm Beach to Acapulco. One of the industry's best kept secrets-The Dow Twins provided a lifetime of fun for untold numbers of loyal followers. This memoir documents an unprecedented half century of success in a fickle business where longevity is rarely achieved.
