Because I lack of self respect when it comes to chess.
I may not have time to really annotate this, but the short answer to your question is "No - I don't think you'll embarass yourself at a club". There are usually plenty of lower rated players at clubs and I'm sure you'll be up to taking them on.
Its hard to annotate games like because there are tons of subtle mistakes and not many obvious ones. However, this is really the reason why I say you wouldn't be embarassed at your typical club - no really awful mistakes. If you play like this most of the time, the better players will grind you down, but people won't dislike playing you.
One comment - how fast do you play? In general, most club players aren't looking for really long games. Not everyone likes blitz, but most people are usually looking for relatively fast games (An hour or less maybe - it does vary though).
