Default Meaning of "606"

Does anyone know what this number actually stands for?

I believe its the number of times Dave has successfully eaten a sandwich with bacon, but don't quote me on it yet. I may be wrong.

99.9% sure it's a reference to Studio 606, the name of the recording studio in his Virginia home.
