Having or has


Hello everybody, in my attempt to make my English students decide between present continuous or simple present I asked them this question, but now I think both options are correct, please let me know what you think:

Michael ___________with his friends tomorrow evening.

a. is having a party
b. has a party

Thanks in advance.

    Both are correct, though (a) is more frequent.
    One way to distinguish the typical uses of the two forms would be to have a second sentence with 'every weekend' instead of 'tomorrow evening'.
