I have been invited to lunch on my first day at a mid-sized federal agency by a fellow analyst. What should we talk about?

She'll be acting in a mentor role for me so I'm trying to figure out how open to be with my questions, and how to approach this relationship. My main concern right now is the transition from academia to government work...and basically just understanding working for the federal government. I feel this may be too broad and are cultural-social things I'll learn when I'm there.
What are some smart/effective questions or topics to ask?
Also, bonus question: what do I wear on my first day? I felt silly asking her this in the email.
