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 party."

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!!
