    HUNDREDS OF THOUSANDS OF PEOPLE MASSED AROUND WHAT WAS BILLED AS "THE WORLD'S LONGEST COFFEE TABLE" IN COPENHAGEN DENMARK TODAY (FRIDAY) -- BUT NOT ALL OF THEM MANAGED TO GET A CUP OF COFFEE." THE TABLE -- LAID DOWN COPENHAGEN'S MILE-LONG (1.6 KM LONG) MAIN SHOPPING STREET -- IS THE HIGHLIGHT OF FESTIVITIES MARKING THE CITY'S 800TH ANNIVERSARY.

    THE FESTIVAL ORGANISERS HAD EXPECTED THAT 60,000 CUPS OF COFFEE, 60,000 MUGS OF BEER, 40,000 MILK SHAKES, AND 60,000 PANCAKES, WOULD BE SUFFICIENT FOR THE CROWDS AT THE TABLE UNTIL 8 O'CLOCK TONIGHT. BUT HARASSED OFFICIALS THREW UP THEIR HANDS IN DISMAY LESS THAN AN HOUR AFTER THE TABLE WAS "OPENED" THIS MORNING. ONE SAID HE EXPECTED THAT EVERYTHING WOULD BE "SOLD OUT" BY NOON.
