Blue cheese stuffed olives seem to be a Chicago thing. I'm frequently offered them when I'm in the Windy City.

My preference is anchovy-stuffed, but I like anchovies. Francesca's on Taylor Street has a barkeep that will stuff an anchovy into a naked pitted olive just for me. I tip him well.

Here in New York, custom olives don't happen to me in bars. I keep my eye out for anchovy-stuffed olives in fancy-food stores, although I have also found them in ordinary groceries.
