If you missed the launch party for Liddabit Sweets’ new cookbook, you have another shot at meeting the local confectioners on Tuesday night at Greenlight, where they’ll be joined by Blue Bottle Coffee, which just released The Blue Bottle Craft of Coffee: Growing, Roasting, and Drinking, with Recipes.
