FOR MANY BALTIMOREANS, THE NEW year doesn't really start until the first Saturday in January. That's when the Rotary Club of Baltimore throws its annual Oyster Roast -- this year, its 84th. Folks line up outside the Fifth Regiment Armory long before the doors officially open at noon. Once those doors open, and the 2,000-plus guests come pouring in, the lines inside begin. Many are at the 12 oyster-shucking stations. Unless you're like Rick Hornig, Electric Motor Repair industrial salesman.

They were a group of prominent African-American educators - deans of Morgan State College and city schools administrators - pillars of their community searching for advice on how to grow their meager savings. In 1931, in the face of the Great Depression and segregation that kept blacks virtually shut out of Baltimore's mainstream banks and investment houses, the men stepped out on their own, pooled their money and founded an elite investment club. Seventy-five years later, the Club of Baltimore, as it is simply known, still meets in all its tradition and regalia.

My witty neighbor Sebastian has a term for it: al desko. That gives it some much-needed panache, but in the end, it's still just you and your ham-and-swiss-on-rye, at your desk and on the job rather than out for a midday meal at a restaurant with friends or colleagues. Chalk it up as yet another sign of a dying civilization, but polls show that nearly 60 percent of workers lunch al desko these days. And that sad fact, I'm convinced, is why Baltimore's Ad Club is going to be celebrating its 100th anniversary next year as an exhibit at the Maryland Historical Society, rather than as a living, breathing and lunching group.
