What do I need to know for my first art walk showing?

I'm going to have my photography featured in an Art Walk, and this is my first time doing anything like this. I'm excited but don't know what the heck I'm doing. What do I need to know?

Some specific questions I had:
1) They suggested I make business cards. I have a "studio" page, but it's just an empty placeholder Facebook page. Should I put something up there so if people decide to follow me they can actually see something? Does it matter? Do I need a separate "professional" facebook page to go along with it?
2) Is it better to have a theme or an assortment of random photos?
3) How much mingling will I have to do? I have terrible social anxiety, which wouldn't be a problem except I've been lazy and haven't taken my medicine for it in months. This thing is in a few weeks, which won't be enough time to fix that... I'm worried I'll make a bad impression with my social-awkwardness.
4) I feel like my recent photography sucks. Granted, I don't know if this is necessarily true because I've only asked one person (a friend) for critiques recently and I'm kind of starting to think he can't be objective (the work I submitted so far was from a few years ago and had the seal of approval from a professor.) I want to take more recent photographs so I'll have more things up, but what if they suck?
