The martini-swirling phenomenon underneath it all was making the look work, while simultaneously working the Fall City Bistro on a Sunday evening in February. “Good morning!” Akasha Manila greeted the guests trickling in for dinner, “good to see you! I just woke up!” Manila’s sleepy claim fit perfectly with the “Divas” theme of the night’s show. It probably wasn’t true though, because this particular diva, like his fellow performers, was already made-up for her appearance in the semimonthly “Night Queens” drag show at the bistro, and doing makeup takes a while.
