I'm taking a break this week so I'm just going to share this snippet from my archives for adding a JQuery Validate rule which disallows any date greater than today.

function(value, element) {
      var currentDate = new Date();
      var selectedDate = new Date(value);
      return (currentDate >= selectedDate);
"You cannot select a date greater than today."
