First mentioned in Branch Wars, The Finer Things Club is considered by some to be the most exclusive club in the office. They meet once a month to discuss books and art and celebrate culture "in a very civilized way." As stated by Pam, "there is no paper, no plastic and no work talk allowed."
Andy desperately wants to be a part of the Finer Things Club, but is never granted membership. He is waitlisted in a deleted scene.
When Jim is granted membership, he squanders it by only pretending to read Angela's Ashes while making a mockery of the club.
