One of our longest-running events, the Silver Club High Tea's nomenclature comes from our predecessor organization, the MIT Silver Club (founded by female MIT employees with long years of service at the Institute), and a British tradition that sounds super fancy.

Fun fact: our High Tea is actually classified as a "low tea" or afternoon tea, the aristocratic version of tea featuring small sandwiches, appetizers, pastries, and desserts. Though, there is no small amount of scholarly debate between Traci and Anthony as to whether the fullness of the meal, and the seating at dining tables rather than a collection of sofas in a drawing room reclassifies it as a "high tea" despite the presence of finger sandwiches and lack of a main meat dish.
Parking will be available in the Sloan Garage (E62) after 3:00pm. If the Sloan Garage is filled when you arrive, please park in the nearby Hayward Garage, and submit your parking ticket for reimbursement at the office.
