Exclamation Battery dead, car locked... :(

I left my 1999 E430 locked and the battery has died, and the remote won't unlock it. Does anyone know if it has a mechanical unlock (as in putting the key in the door can unlock it without any electricity)? I kinda need to know quickly, because I need the car tonight, and even if I were to jump it the hood release and battery are inside the car.

Thanks in advance,

EDIT:The reason I ask is because I dnt want to set off the alarm and get attacked by a block of neighbors

You do have blade key, that slides out of the knob?
They don't make them for nothing.
