What is ' throw' here mean?

‘I've seen you, hanging round Modern Languages, braying at each other, throwing black-tie dinner parties—'


Hi, Im learning English, and now trying to translate the novel 'one day' into Chinese for practicing my English.

I've been looking up all the dictionary I found but still can get the proper meaning here.

Could anyone please helps me?: )

I guess it might mean ' take part in' ?

"throwing" as used,  means "having" or "hosting"  or "giving"

The collocation is "throw a party". See if there's an equivalent expression for that.

I don't understand what you are saying.
