At the beginning of Chapter 2, Ponyboy Curtis and Johnny Cade met Dally Winston on "the corner of Pickett and Sutton."  When they met, they were too early to go the movie at the drive-in, so they walked to the drugstore to wait until it was time to head to The Dingo, the drive-in that the Greasers frequent.  At the drugstore, the boys

bought Cokes and blew the straws at the waitress, and walked around eyeing things that were lying out in the open until the manager got wise to us and suggested we leave.  He was too late, though; Dally walked out with two packages of Kools under his jacket.

Later, the boys met Cherry Valance and her friend, Marcia, and were confronted by the Socs.
