Synchronize your ntp servers, 'cause 1234567890 is coming!

This Friday at 4:31:30 PM Mountain time, it will be 1234567890 seconds* since midnight on January 1st, 1970 Coordinated Universal Time. That moment marks the Unix epoch, time 0 -- the reference point for a great many computer systems today. This moment on Friday is special because it looks cool to species with a number system based on ten fingers.

Coming as it does at a normal beer-thirty time, I'd like to do something clever at work, particularly because some of our data is saved with a Unix timestamp. Does anyone know of some drinks or snacks thematically appropriate to 1234567890?

* Excluding leap seconds.

New Belgium's 1554? (It's delicious anyway.)
