UNIVERSITY CITY, Mo. — In a year where the live music scene was silenced and restaurant industry was devastated by the COVID-19 pandemic, Joe Edwards pointed to at least one positive change that happened inside St. Louis’ iconic Blueberry Hill.

The floor.

“Those first couple of months was to refinish the floors. And I know that sounds really mundane, but because we’re open seven days a week every day of the year and have been all those years since 1972 until the pandemic hit, I took that opportunity to be able to really refinish the floors in the proper way,” Edwards explained on a recent episode of the Abby Eats St. Louis podcast. “That could not have happened ever before.”
