Kerry Washington and her girlfriends celebrated America's Memorial Day weekend (ends30May16) with a trip to Las Vegas to see her pal Jennifer Lopez in concert.

The pregnant star treated 10 of her closest friends to a Sin City getaway on Sunday (29May16), and Kerry gave her social media followers an inside look into their unforgettable ladies-only holiday online, using the hashtag "DubsAndDaGirlsDoVegas" in snaps she shared on Instagram.

The group, which included Kerry's Scandal co-star Darby Stanchfield, jetted off from Los Angeles to Las Vegas in a private plane. When they arrived to the city, they kicked off the festivities with a "pre-game" manicure and pedicure party, courtesy of beauty brand OPI, a company the actress recently collaborated with to create the 'Washington D.C.' nail polish line inspired by her hit political TV drama.

They enjoyed a dinner at hotspot Mr. Chow, before heading over to the Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino, where Jennifer performs her All I Have residency show.

Both Scandal stars shared videos and photos from the concert, and Kerry, a New York native like Jennifer, even got a special shout out during the concert from the singer, who took a moment to acknowledge the actress in the audience.

"Give it up for Kerry Washington, everybody!" Jennifer told the crowd. "That's another Bronx girl right there, if you don't know. Reppin' to the fullest! Thank you for coming baby!"

Kerry later shared a photo of her backstage with Jennifer, adding the caption, "@jlo repping the best of The Boogie Down (Bronx). Love you mama."

The Django Unchained actress even got the chance to sit on the prop silver crescent moon used in the show, and she shared a snap of her lounging gracefully on the piece, tweeting, "Tonight I got to go from The Bronx to the moon and then back again. Thank you @jlo Good night Vegas."

Kerry recently revealed on America's The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon that she and the Latina beauty have known each other long before they both became stars - Jennifer once served as Kerry's dance teacher.

"Our (dance teacher) had an awesome substitute teacher named Jennifer who would sometimes step in and teach but then she left to move to L.A. and be on In Living Color.... I learned to dance from J.Lo!" she recalled.

Meanwhile, the well-documented girls' trip also marked the end of a two-week social media hiatus for Kerry, who said she was taking a "teeny break from social media" as she enjoys her second pregnancy.

But Kerry admitted she might go back in hiding after the Vegas adventure, tweeting on Sunday, "Don't know if I'm OFFICIALLY back, but I can't not share next 24 hrs with u! SO...I'm about to be social. & snappy (Snapchat) too. & maybe grammy (Instagram). LOL".
