Which language are you playing the game in? English
How often does the bug occur? Occasionally (10% - 49%)
What is your current game version number? 1.65.70.1020

Steps: How can we find the bug ourselves? Starting a wedding event with leftovers in the fridge. Hire a catering services, mixologist, and a musician
What happens when the bug occurs? The chef will not prepare food. The mixologist will not mix drinks. I can't call people to meals or cut the wedding cake because the caterer didn't make one. This has happened numerous times

Did this issue appear after a specific patch or change you made to your system? Neutral/Not Sure 

Summary:

Food caterer will not prepare food for some reason with leftovers in the fridge during wedding events. I don't know if it is only certain leftovers or all leftovers. The ones I had in there were from the grill. I've experienced this bug a plethora of times, as I am constantly making new households and marrying Sims. 

 

As far as the mixologist problem, I don't know what was causing it. I had a bar placed in the house. Maybe it was too close to a wall

@thomasjk96Same. Had a very sad New Year's Eve party during which the caterer and mixologist partied and watched tv but did zero work. Waste of time and simoleons and very frustrating problem.

 

Edit: had working bar in home and also had leftovers in fridge.

I have this problem too. I just have my Sims make their own food and drinks, even though a caterer and mixologist are technically present at the party.

Hired caterers and mixologists socialize instead of work?

★★★ Novice

Product: The Sims 4
Platform:PC
Which language are you playing the game in? English
How often does the bug occur? Every time (100%)
What is your current game version number? 1.65.70.1020
What expansions, game packs, and stuff packs do you have installed? All of them
Steps: How can we find the bug ourselves? Host an event and hire a caterer
What happens when the bug occurs? The caterer and the mixologist act as if they're guests and socialize at social events and do not do the actions they are supposed to do.
What do you expect to see? The caterers and mixologists should not act as if they're guests and if this is a "feature" of "good" and "bad" hired workers then there needs to be a way for the party host to tell them to get back to work.
Have you installed any customization with the game, e.g. Custom Content or Mods? Not now. I've removed them.
Did this issue appear after a specific patch or change you made to your system? Neutral/Not Sure 

The caterer gets drinks from the bar (when the mixologists actually works) and chats with guests and does not cook the required food or cake for the party. It is making it nearly impossible to meet the extremely simple requirements of a birthday party (i.e., make a toast when no drinks can be ordered, or blow out the candles on the cake when the caterer has been there for HOURS and hasn't made a cake.)
