You have the spider fuel system on this? Use a gage and check fuel pressure. That type fuel system is noted for problems. Also, have a helper crank it while you visually check for spark at the plugs. How long since a tune-up? Any applicable trouble codes?

no codes at all. i know about checking for spark, problem is it isn't at home when it broke down. it's in a parking lot between a nice restaurant and a bank, and just getting a ride to it isn't easy or convient. ugh

Call a tow-truck. tow it home or to a garage. Look around the area where the car is parked, any garages? Walk over and talk to them, ask them to take a look at it.
