Joey Cabell's Surprise
Birthday December 10th, 2005
Yana Deaton threw
the surprise party of the parties, for her love, Joey Cabell,
the legendary surfer and restauranteur. Yana explains how the
party came to fruition.
"Joey and I had an invitation
to visit the island of Namotu, Fiji in October. We both agreed
that Namotu was one of the most amazing places we had ever been
in the world! There we found perfect surf, sun, shelling and beautiful
Fijian people, so I decided to throw Joey a Fijian surprise birthday
So Yana organized the big
surprise party for Joey in Oahu.....
"I created a feeling
that our guests would be walking into a tropical island in their
"sarong" attire. Tropical trees lined the entry way,
colorful lights and disco ball dazzled the eyes, seashell leis
hung about. Guests were greeted by our "Party Pig" on
the buffet table and handed the "Namotu Skull Drag Cocktail,"
named after the skull drag where they tow you behind a boat and
you are dragged across the beautiful reefs. Our food was catered
by The Chart House, Honolulu of course! Joey walked into his "surprise,"
the band broke out into "Happy Birthday" and he was
shocked! Joey was surrounded by family and friends who all love
him so much! It was another surprise and honor to have surf legend
George Downing join in on the celebration."
Aloha Yana and Joey
and a Big Happy Birthday
to you Joey!!! Yana organized a great celebration!!
