What's difference between "have a party" and "throw a party"?
  "have a party" is for people who have very elegant and carefully-planned sophisticated occasions.
"throw a party" is for young people who spontaneously say to a bunch of friends: "Bring over some beer and chips and we'll party."

I am going to show my presentation amid you. Is it a correct sentence with 'amid'?
